The celebration day serves as a reward to the students for all of their hard work throughout the year.

The day is complete with fun outdoor games, competitions and face painting.

“The reason for today is because of all the hard work each and every one of you as done all year long,” said Principal Joseph Musa.

Ted and Amy introduced a comical game between teachers and students, which tested their knowledge of how well they knew each other.

Four teachers and students were selected and brought into separate areas.

They were each asked questions about each other like “If your student had a birthday party, what would be the theme?” and “What does your teacher eat for lunch?”

After they re-joined in the auditorium, the audience of students and teachers laughed as the teams revealed each others answers and what the correct answers really were.

Andrew Matteson and his student, Emily Kerst, proved victorious when Hurst told Ted what Matteson’s favorite saying was: “Purple pride never dies!”
