With the sun peaking through a few clouds, C.H. Campbell Elementary School students celebrated the school’s annual Beach Day on April 18.

The students embraced the sunshine as they dressed in brightly-colored beachwear for the day. Many students got into the spirit of the day by wearing shorts, sandals, swim trunks, sunglasses, sun hats, straw hats, baseball hats, bucket hats, Hawaiian shirts, Hawaiian leis, visors, hula skirts and some even wore flowers in their hair.

In the cafeteria, which was decorated with beach balls and sand buckets hanging from the ceiling and many other beach-themed items, tables were cleared away and students enjoyed a picnic-style lunch on their own beach towels and blankets. Beach music played in the background as the children ate their lunch.

“Beach Day is a day to celebrate spring and the beginning of spring break,” said Shannon Cox, Beach Day chair.

Following lunch, the PTA provided push-ups for the children as they were ushered into the gym for a dance party with a disc jockey. As the music played, students enjoyed playing with beach balls, hula hoops and participating in the limbo. They also danced to “The Twist” and “Baby Shark” and formed a train and made their way around the gym.

Several PTA volunteers were on hand to help with the event.
