On Oct. 28, several retired teachers were invited to Owen County Primary School to be guest readers in classrooms.
Mindy Green, OCPS librarian, invited Phyllis Malcomb, Eleanor Gamble, Rita Ball, Debbie McMillen, Debra Gash, Nancy Castle, Jan Peterson, Beth Stewart, and Margie Marston. These retired teachers read books on fall festivals, Halloween, and some of their favorite fairy tales. The primary students dressed in costumes to match their favorite book characters. They brought books for show-and-tell and talked about their costumes and books.
Friday evening, students attended the annual OCPS Fall Festival that drew the largest crowd ever.
Parents, students and teachers enjoyed a chili supper. Afterward, students played ring toss, pumpkin toss, and other games.
They got their faces painted and jumped in the bounce house.
New and popular this year was an opportunity to get crowns, monkeys, helmets, and a variety of other things made of balloons.
Of all the things available during the evening, some students enjoyed the costume contest the most.
