Hundreds of students and parents filled Sulphur Springs Community School for the return of the Sulphur Springs PTA Carnival to their home turf on Friday.
“We are thrilled to have it back on our campus because I know that last year it was at a baseball field,” said Katie Palacious, Sulphur Springs Community School principal. “It’s really giving all of our families a chance to come and just gather and get a chance to spend time together and engage.”
Sulphur Springs pulled out all the stops to make the carnival as interactive as possible, leaving no dull moments.
Students rotated among rock climbing, horseshoes, gemstone panning, bouncy houses, the high striker and Frisbee golf. If they were in need of a break, there was no short supply of refreshments and food.
Parent attendees Nicole Ross and Pamela Franco said that Sulphur Springs is never in any short supply of school events. The carnival remains a favorite for their kids.
“They’ve been looking forward to it,” said Franco.
The carnival left no one as a stranger.
“It’s not just a school,” said Ross. “It’s like family.”
In celebration of the recent beautification efforts, Sulphur Springs welcomed students to paint tiles and offer an idea to name the walkway that the tiles will be displayed on.
“I know that there has been many people also that have been saying that they’re so happy with the beautification, the updates of this campus and not everyone has seen it, so it’s amazing to get people here at our site, onto our site and just getting a chance to be participating in our school community,” said Palacious.
