Fall is in Full Swing at District 123


With bright colored leaves falling from the trees and a crisp bite to the air it was the perfect night for D123 schools to celebrate the season with family and friends.

At Hometown Elementary tables lined the gymnasium with those eager to play Bingo at the PTA Bingo night.

“This event is such a great opportunity for families to come together socially and informally and see the school as a hub for the community,” said Hometown Principal Katy Spreitzer.

Guests young and old came out hoping to exclaim Bingo! at some point and claim a prize from the front table filled with things like candy, headphones, puzzles and books.  Hometown hosts a bingo night nearly six times a year, giving guests of all ages the opportunity to come out and have some fun with the game.

Games were a big draw for families to come out to the Kolmar Fun Night. Smaller games and photo ops lined the halls leading to the gym where an inflatable basketball hoop, giant Jenga and other games kept kids entertained while the adults enjoyed catching up with each friends.

“Fun Fest is a great way to keep our families together, catch up and even make some new friends,” said Rose, a Parent Volunteer.

Arts and crafts also allowed for kids to show off their creative side to mom and dad, making fall themed wreaths and painting plates to look like Jack O Lanterns.

Over at Hannum it was a Monster Mash as elementary school students showed off their halloween best! A DJ spun the latest hits for a dance party and spooky stories were told in the dark.

“Its nice to get together and enjoy the evening as a whole Hannum community the kids love being together and the ghost stories are always a hit,” said Marion Scarpelli.
