What a way to spend the day! Mt. Loafer students rotated from station to station doing fun-filled activities for field day! The PTO put together activities that correlated with Dr. Seuss books. They participated in water relays, hoppity-horse races, squirt bottle tag, wet sponge games, and bounced their way through a blow-up obstacle course! It was a great day for students and we especially want to thank our awesome PTO!

Things were a little topsy-tervy, roley-poley, and just plain funny when Mrs. Killian met her matches on the mat as she battled the teachers at Sumo Wrestling! Mrs. Killian promised the classes who met their goal for the walk-a-thon, that she would wrestle their teachers on the mat! They dressed up as Sumo Wrestlers and grappled to the ground! There were cheers, and cries of victory from the teachers AND from Mrs. Killian! We appreciate all the students who worked so hard to help bring money in to the school for this fundraiser, and a very BIG thanks to Mrs.
Our very special first, second, and third grade students performed a spectacular spring concert, under the direction of our wonderful music teacher, Robin Brown. The students sang many patriotic classics, such as, You're a Grand Old Flag, America, God Bless the USA, Fifty, Nifty, United States, and All-American Me and You, plus many others. Mrs. Brown has been working hard with each class and it showed by the enthusiasm that filled the room! Thanks to all of these wonderful students and to Mrs. Brown for the hard work and effort put into this concert!
Friday was a wonderful day for our Walk-a-thon! The students came ready for this fabulous fundraiser, with their walking shoes, shorts, cool t-shirts, and sunglasses! The students walked around the course that was ¼ mile in distance and received certain prizes and treats as they completed so many laps. There were many red faces, tired legs, but most of all, lots and lots of smiles as they ran and walked for a great cause! Thanks Mt. Loafer students, and especially Mrs. Betteridge, our physical Education specialist, for putting this all together!
