On November 3 Angels Academy, a private kindergarten and elementary school in Marsh Harbour, held their annual school fair. Students, teachers, family and friends stopped by the campus on Front Street to enjoy lunch, games, prizes and treats. The weather held out beautifully as the children played and parents talked about upcoming events.
Tickets were sold for lunches, dinners and for the many games as well. Darts, basketball and fun games of chance proved popular to the many students and children who came by that afternoon and early evening. Many from the Parent Teacher Association came to volunteer their time and supervise the activities.
Michelle Roark, owner and teacher at Angels Academy, said she was very pleased with the turnout. The response she has had so far from the parents and teachers since taking over the school has been overwhelmingly positive, she explained. This fundraising event, along with others throughout the year, is aimed to keep improving the quality of education and to eventually move to a new campus.
By the end of the day many tickets had been spent by the children on one of the many games and many others walked away with painted faces or hands full of candy.
