School hosts book fair, art night
Rising above the hubbub at last Thursday’s book fair in the Seward Elementary library, there was the sound of pleading and strident demands as youngsters made their selections and then began their negotiations. Sometimes a stack of books was knocked down to just a couple and sometimes a plastic gadget was set aside, rejected by the parental unit. However, everyone left satisfied and properly grateful. Or else.
Across the hall and down a corridor, Art Night festooned the school’s gym as a boom box dropped some beats and dancing kids, parents and teachers grooved along. Tables with various activities were set up allowing the gathered youth to exercise their creativity at the point of a non-permanent marker or with glues and paints and construction paper. It was over far too soon when 7 p.m. rolled around.
