WEST SHAMOKIN: Students celebrate Halloween with dance, games
On Oct. 19, the West Shamokin Leo Club hosted a Halloween dance for elementary students in grades three through six from Elderton Elementary, Shannock Valley and Dayton.
The night was full of fun and dancing for all the students. There were lots of games and refreshments for the kids to buy.
The kids enjoyed buying ice cream, chips, candy and cookies.
Many members showed up to help with this terrific event.
The Leo Club made a successful profit to fund Leo activities throughout the year to help the community.
In the middle of the dance, each class competed within itself in a hula hoop game, where a number of a hula hoop was called and the kids in the hoop were eliminated from the game.
Kyle McElwain and Vince Passerini did an amazing job at picking the perfect songs to play for the elementary kids which included Justin Bieber songs and the new hit "Gangnam Style."
The night went down without any problems and everyone was exhausted at the end of the night.
West Shamokin would like to thank the members of the Lions Club for donating the nacho cheese and the pop.
On Wednesday, the senior class sponsored a Halloween carnival for students in grades seven through nine.
It is a tradition here at West Shamokin for the seniors to dress up and play host to various games such as Toilet Paper Toss, 3-Legged Race, The Impossible Shot, Plinko, Twister and Guitar Hero. There was face painting, music and a bake sale.
Most importantly, prizes.
Students earned tickets by playing games and then traded those tickets for various prizes donated by the West Shamokin staff and seniors.
Senior class officers did an excellent job organizing this year's carnival.
Senior class adviser Laura Breznican said, "I am very proud of my seniors this year; this is the most organized and creative carnival that I have seen. I am thankful to all of the students who participated, planned and played, and also to the staff members who helped out by donating items, money and time for this event."
