Frontier Elementary School's annual Fall Festival was a smash success, raising over $8,000 for new curricular materials and computers.
"But the best part of the evening," FES Principal Sue Myers said, "was how everybody left with smiles on their faces. This is just a great event that brings families together for a fun-filled night."
The festival, which was held Friday, Oct. 20, featured games in every room of the dome, a pumpkin carving event thanks to the Tonto Apaches who donated 400 pumpkins, horseback riding thanks to parents who brought five horses, a fire truck from the Payson Fire Department, cookie decorating, skeleton making and a giant basket silent auction.
"There was so much going on that the kids couldn't do everything," Myers said. "Our teachers are just awesome, and they deserve a lot of the credit."
