Hilltop Elementary School students celebrated the school’s annual PTA-sponsored Student Appreciation Day on May 10.

All students were treated to a bounce-a-round party and enjoyed hand-spun pink cotton throughout the day.

Each class was split into small groups and visited a bounce castle, an inflatable obstacle course and a giant inflatable slide shaped like a fire truck.

The students had 40 minutes to visit the three bounce-a-rounds and the cotton candy table, where they were served the pink treat.

The bounce-a-rounds were set up in the playground area and when the whistle blew, the students moved onto their next station.

Several PTO volunteers, coordinated by Christine Oliver, Student Appreciation Day chairperson, helped with the event throughout the day.

“Student Appreciation Day is a reward for the kids for working hard all year. They can burn off some energy and have fun at the end of the year. They really enjoy it and look forward to it each year,” Oliver said.
