Grade 12 students Madison Muskeyn and Sky Shin had a little fun Monday while they sorted through some of the prizes for this Wednesday’s Family Fun Night at Crowe.

Trail high school rolls out mini carnival

Crowe's leadership students are transforming the gymnasium into a penny carnival for elementary school kids Wednesday night from 6-7:30 p.m.

Let the games begin.

J. L. Crowe Secondary School’s leadership students are transforming the gymnasium into a penny carnival for Greater Trail elementary school kids Wednesday night from 6-7:30 p.m.

Children under 10 years old are invited to Family Fun Night, where stations such as miniature hockey, arts and crafts, carnival games and science experiments will help them work up an appetite for a $2 hotdog dinner.

“This is really the only event that we do for kids so it’s just nice to kind of get some diversity and do something for the younger kids because they’ll be coming up here eventually so they can get an idea of what it looks like,” said Grade 12 student Madison Muskeyn.

This is the last community event hosted by the leadership students this year. The class is responsible for putting many community events on including their biggest undertaking, the Crowe Variety Show.

Grade 12 student Sky Shin enjoys having a say in what goes into school events but most of all, she said, the class has really helped her open up.

“I was a really shy person in Grade 8 and 9 and I saw big leadership kids running all of these events and I always really wanted to be a part of that group and I joined it and I think my personality and perspective have changed,” she said.
