Austintown Intermediate School celebrated before break with a winter party in their classrooms on Dec. 22.

These classroom parties, put on by the school’s PTA, took place after lunch. They included games, a craft and a snack.

“They get to have fun and let loose before their big break,“ said the school’s PTA president Patty Herman about the day.

All of the classes in the school participated in the celebration. Many of the crafts and snack they had fit with the holiday theme. For example, Mr. Ritter’s fifth grade class made a snow globe for their craft. Similarly, many of the classrooms had snacks such as candy canes.

The games the students played also went along with the holiday season. Ms. Kushner’s third grade class had a game similar to pin the tail on the donkey where they pinned a carrot on a snowman. Students in Ms. Noel’s third grade class placed candy canes in their mouths and tried to hook other candy canes in a cup and remove them from the cup without knocking the it over.

Parents volunteered to organize and run the games and crafts in each room. When the games and crafts finished, the parents could take their children home early to start their break.
