Successful Pirate Family Night at Rutledge
- Angela Garis, Rutledge Elementary
- Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
We had a book fair in November that had a Pirate theme. Our Leadership events team decided to make this a collaborative event that would take families on a Mapquest to different stations, where they had activities that used our 7 Habits of Highly Successful Schools. My Performing Arts teacher and I collaborated in making the gym a " Sharpen the Saw" area where we danced using Pirate themed music and played tag games using a Pirate theme as well. We had over 300 families come in the gym throughout the night . We were all very sweaty from the movement and it was a fun way to incorporate the Pirate theme. We have another themed night coming up in April for " Let's go Camping"
