Many shared

talents with kids

On Friday, Feb. 23, approximately 500 Century Middle School students in Grades 5-8 had the opportunity to participate in Activity Day. This was an afternoon set aside for the students to try an exciting and sometimes a new learning experience in a safe and controlled setting. Without the great help from the following volunteers and local businesses, we at Century Middle School would not have been able to accomplish the fun-filled afternoon.

Thanks go to the following businesses and organizations: Essence of Thyme Day Spa (homemade beauty products), Kathy Monico and the Northwoods Arabians Stable, Lori Lea Lanes (bowling), Citizens National Bank (bank tour), Sue Tomte of Mary Kay (Color 101), North Memorial Ambulance (first aid), Brigid's House (yoga) and Headwaters Animal Shelter.

Other programs and volunteers offered Cosmo 101, 4-H robotics and program, rubber stamping fun, a Mexican fiesta, ice skating, 3 on 3 basketball, cheerleading, archery, rain sticks and memory book.

The Century Middle School staff also did a great job providing the above-mentioned activities and additional activities: broomball, cookie mix in a jar, bingo, radio-controlled cars, Age of Empires and chess. The kids had an awesome afternoon and I am proud to be part of such a great staff.

We are already looking ahead to Activity Day 2008. If you would like to volunteer your time or talent, please contact me at 237-6309.
