The Hopatcong Borough School District held its first free Family Appreciation Night Fri., Sept. 30. Almost 300 people—students, parents, and district employees—attended the event which was created and run by the Guidance Department. The event was intended to enhance community relations and recognize parents for their continued support in the educational partnership.
Each school in the district sponsored an activity at the fair. Hudson Maxim Elementary School’s table allowed kids the opportunity to plant flower seeds in a take-home planter. Tulsa Trail Elementary School sponsored a hula hooping activity and a table-top claw game; Durban Avenue Elementary School worked with students on playing mini-Kan-Jam Frisbee toss. Hopatcong Middle School volunteers helped kids play ladder golf and the HHS volunteers assisted students with corn hole. Other activities include a funky photo booth, various contests, free food, giveaways, numerous prize raffles and a DJ. A fun time was had by all! The district would like to thank the many sponsors and volunteers who made this night a great success.
