LAVALLETTE — Students played on bounce houses on the Lavallette Elementary School field while parents relaxed in beach chairs and enjoyed the summer sky during the Parent Teacher Organization’s year-end carnival celebration.
The carnival, which took place on June 14, provided families with an opportunity to commemorate their children’s accomplishments throughout the academic year.
Catering done by Shore Point Barbeque offered a delectable assortment of food, including pulled pork, pulled chicken, chicken tenders, mac and cheese, fresh salad, cornbread and more. Additionally, DJ Mardi Gras provided music for the event.
Students participated in arts and crafts, received temporary glitter tattoos, witnessed the creation of balloon animals and took pictures in a photo booth. An ice cream truck was also stationed in front of the school, providing a refreshing treat to all attendees.
Initially scheduled for June 14 at 5:30 p.m., the event was delayed one hour.
“We postponed the event by one hour due to intermittent rain, but the timing turned out to be perfect,” said PTO president Rebecca Malloy. By 6:30 p.m., the sun emerged, creating a warm atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
