Back to School Bash!

On Friday, September 20, 2013, the Blackville Home and School committee organized a weekend jam packed with activities for students of all ages. The event was kicked off with a movie night on Friday, which had a fantastic turnout. Elementary students had watched the movie, “Epic,” and forty middle and high school students had come out to watch the film “Now You See Me.”

The festivities had continued onto Saturday, when there was a yard sale in the open area from eight to twelve. At the barbecue, popcorn and cotton candy was sold, and people
were also able to get henna tattoos or have their face painted. In the afternoon, the carnival had started on the soccer field where everyone could participate in an abundance of activities. Of the games, it was evident that the fan favourites had been the jumping castle and the dunk tank.  

The “Back to School Bash” was made possible by the Home and School Committee, as well as a number of dedicated volunteers. The event was a complete success, and the $1,985.00 raised will gotowards the upcoming purchase of a floor cover for the new gym floor. The Home and School Association would like to give a big thanks to everyone who came out to support BHS.
