Smiling faces and the sound of laughter were in abundance last Tuesday as Black Street Early Childhood Center prepared to dismiss classes for the Thanksgiving holiday. The center, which houses 3-5K Special Needs and 4-5K classes, also held its annual Health Fall Festival promoting healthy life habits and celebrating the advent of fall.
Throughout the day, students engaged in events which combined fun with learning about healthy lifestyles. Each class participated in Germ Attack, a glitter activity showing how quickly germs can spread from one person to another, and Healthy Heights, which utilized stilts for balance, control and patience skills.
Other events included Pumpkin Ring Toss, Veggie Prints, Dance Station, Face Painting, Caution Tape Maze, Hula Hoop, Tug-O-War, Turkey Tag, Harvest Relay and the Hungry Caterpillar Toss.
Coordinating and planning the all-day event were Stephanie Leitgeb, physical education teacher, and Denise Crowley, computer lab clerk.
The Black Street Early Childhood Center Parent-Teacher Organization organized and manned the photo booth. Colleton County Middle School Beta Club students volunteered throughout the festival, providing help with the events. Men of Distinction from Colleton County High School were also on hand and Coastal Kids Dental provided a demonstration on dental health for each class.
“The day was a lot of fun for our students,” said Leitgeb. “We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the festival.”
