The Benedictine School celebrated the end of the school year with festive and fun games, a DJ and delicious food at the school’s annual Fun Day on June 16.
From an inflatable slide, dancing the Electric Slide to face painting and the ever-popular pie toss, the faculty and students celebrated the end of yet another successful school year.
Kathy Marinucci, of Dominic’s Farm in Queenstown, brought several of her animals, including two small ponies, and a goat that the students and participants could pet. The Ridgely Fire Department brought a fire truck for students to explore.
Several of the employees were brave enough to participate in being on the receiving end of the pie toss.
“Our students and staff work hard all year,” said Julie Hickey, school principal. Our Fun Day event is a great way to celebrate that hard work as a school community. We welcomed families and the full Benedictine community as we bid farewell to another successful school year.”
