Last Family Fun Night next week


A free dinner, badminton, and the full display of Lake Roosevelt students’ artistic and scientific sides will be featured at the final Family Fun Night of the year next Wednesday at the school.

Organizers Kim Stanger and Victor Camarena said the event, the fourth this year, will feature displays of student art, of all kinds. Some will be visual arts, but students will also perform in song and on instruments and recite poetry in the courtyard at Lake Roosevelt Schools.

There will be a destructive aspect to the night, too. Students have been learning engineering principles by building a bridge out of toothpicks. They will “test its stability” at the event, meaning they will break it.

“They’re all excited about that,” Stanger said.

The event starts off at 5 p.m. with a meeting of the Title 7 JOM committee and an election of officers, then offers a barbecue dinner about 5:30.

In addition to mingling, taking in student work, performances and exhibits, attendees should sign up for door prizes when they enter and get into a team or bring their own for the badminton tournament. Door prizes include a camera and several gift baskets.

The event is sponsored by the JOM program, Project Lead the Way and the Colville Tribal K-12 program.

Everyone is invited.
