Standish Elementary Family Game Night
Pizza, pop, and games galore were enjoyed by students of Standish Elementary and their families on Thursday, January 27. Although cold outside, it was nice and toasty inside the elementary's gymnasium which hosted the Family Game Night in conjunction with Office Central, an office supply and teacher store located in West Branch, Michigan. Owner Sandy Rabidue was impressed with the event's large turnout. "We had 189 sign up" said the Elementary's Title 1 consultant, Mrs. Bartlett. Office Central hosts similar game nights in schools all over Michigan, toting along 18 to 20 learning games for families to try out. As the night wound down, games were available for parents to purchase tax free and a percentage of the procedes were donated back to the school.
