The students and faculty at Mt. Loafer Elementary would like to thank Mr. George Brinkerhoff. Mr. Brinkerhoff was a special guest at the Ken Garff Assembly. He has written several children's books and donated a copy of his latest book, Plum, to the Mt. Loafer library. Some of the illustrations were done by children at Mount Loafer and some of the characters are people that he has worked with at the school.
The highlight of the year for many kids in elementary school is the end of the year field day. This consists of games, events and competitions that everyone can participate and enjoy.
Mt. Loafer PTA planned a super day. Students used their summer survivial skills at each rotation; bear wrestling (martial arts), knot tying (giant twister), find the lost camper, beat the heat obstacle course, camping relay, and mental toughness. Thank you, PTA, for the great day!
