Boardman Robinwood Lane Elementary School celebrated the upcoming break with a holiday party on Dec. 21.

Principal Don Robinson said that the party is a school tradition.

“It’s been tradition as long as I have been principal and I have been here 48 years,” Robinson said.

Robinwood PTA members organized the event, providing snacks and games for each classroom in the school.

“Kids enjoy it,” Robinson said. “It’s a nice break from academics.”

Students enjoyed pizza and candy canes while they played games in the fifteen different classrooms.

“Our PTA does a good job of organizing them along with the teachers and home room mom and dads,” Robinson said.

He explained that along with Christmas, the school holds holiday parties for Halloween and Valentines Day each year.

Robinson said the parties have changed throughout the years, being less focused on holiday food and more about playing games.

“We have cut back in recent years, we don’t want kids to get sick and they come straight from lunch,” Robinson said. “Besides, I think they have more fun with the games.”

After the holiday parties students gathered together to end the day with a sing along party.

The school gathered together to sing classic holiday songs before being dismissed for Christmas break,

“We get together as a whole school and get that feeling of the holidays, its a nice way to end the day.” Robinson said.
