About 200 people attended the recent Family Game Night at Kelley School in Newark.
Planned by a group of teachers, the event featured activities tailored to promote spending time together as a family. Several staff members helped out at the event.
“It was great to see students, parents, siblings and teachers interacting in a fun way,” Assistant Principal Kerri Levine said.
Family Game Night started in the cafeteria with a dinner of pizza, clementines, cookies and water. The object of the evening was for every family to play at six game stations: Code Master, Rubik’s Cube, Googly Eyes, Sequence, Battleship and Mancala.
Families left the event with a new board game to take home.
“A great night for a principal looks like this,” tweeted Principal Jeff Hamelinck after the event. “Staff, families and students filling our gym, playing games with each other. Special thanks to all the Newark Kelley School staff for organizing this great evening!”
Family Game Night was combined with the book fair to benefit the student activities fund.
