The event, sponsored by the home and school association, included games and activities in which students competed as teams. The team with the most points received a golden “Helping Hand” trophy.

This was the fourth year the home and school group coordinated the event. “It is a wonderful way to bring our students, at all levels, together and to reinforce that we are not just a school community, we are a family,” said Kathy Denby, development coordinator.
