Fall Festival 2020 at Abraxas Ohio
Abraxas Ohio held their 2nd annual Fall Festival on Friday, October 16, 2020.
Abraxas Ohio held their 2nd annual Fall Festival on Friday, October 16, 2020. The facility and school staff coordinated a day full of fall-themed activities for students as a way to unwind and enjoy the autumn weather. The students spent all day with their second block teachers learning about the history of Dia de los Muertos, coloring Sugar Skulls, completing multiplication color-by-number pumpkins, and participating in a scary story writing contest! Outside activities included a timed obstacle course, a cornhole tournament, pumpkin painting, and horse grooming. Students and staff were treated to a cookout for lunch where the meal was shared at picnic tables between indoor and outdoor activities. Abraxas School Principal Shelly Patrick, School Supervisor Matt Porter, and Community Service/Recreation Director Jordan McCune worked tirelessly to create a safe and engaging program for students to enjoy. This day would not have been possible without them! A couple of students were asked what their favorite part of the day was and they responded: “My favorite part of the day was walking and grooming the horses.”; “This was the best time I’ve had in Abraxas and playing cornhole was my favorite activity.”; and “It was a fun day. Everything was my favorite part.” The facility and school staff look forward to continuing the tradition next year and appreciate all of the support to make this day possible for our students.
