Austintown Intermediate School’s graduating fifth-graders celebrated the end of the school year with Fun Day.

On May 30, fifth-graders at AIS spent the day indoors enjoying a break from school work before the end of the year.

School Principal Angel Owens said that the fifth-graders celebrate Fun Day last so that theirs is closest to the end of the year.

“We want them to have a lot of fun, and to close out their time at AIS with great memories,” Owens said.

During the event, fifth-graders were broken into groups, cycling through a number of stations.

Austintown Bounce provided a variety of bounce houses for students to play on during the event.

Students raced through bounce house mazes, battled during a last man standing game and bounced on exercise balls.

Music played through speakers in the gymnasium, with students dancing throughout the room.

A number of parents and PTA volunteers were also present at the event.

Students also wore matching T-shirts that represented their grade.

Owens said that throughout the last two weeks of school each grade is given a day for their Fun Day events.

Fifth-graders were the last grade to participate, wrapping up Austintown’s school year at the end of the week.
