An exceptionally entertaining time was had by all at Pittsburgh Banksville K-5 annual 100th Day of School Carnival on the evening of February 12, 2013. The fifth graders at Banksville designed and coordinated learning activities at ten different booths all relating to the number 100. Students and families enjoyed games like the 100 Point Ball Toss, the 100 Second Challenge, and the 100 Pairs Table. Guests even had the chance to use ipad apps that 5th grade students researched related to the number 100.
This year also featured the “100 Ways to Keep Your Child Safe” Hallway sponsored by a grant from the National PTA. In this hall, families could receive information about home, road, pet, and cyber safety and meet community workers from the Pittsburgh Police, Fire Department, and Bomb Squad. Each of these groups sent vehicles, representatives and informational materials to share with our families. Winners of our safety poster contest were announced and received special prizes. Every guest that visited every booth also received a prize.
Great job to all the fifth graders for their hard work, Banksville would also like to thank the PTA for writing for the grant which added to this fun event.
