BIG CYPRESS — Let high school and middle school kids have their fancy nighttime dances; Ahfachkee School’s youngest students, from pre-kindergarten through grade five, marked history April 17 with the first early evening kid-fest just for them.
“It came up at a meeting with parents that the little kids should have a special party, too, and everyone agreed,” said Jonelle Pollard, an instructional aide.
Bounce houses, piñatas and limbo dancing were deemed the most fun activities during the two-hour luau event in the school cafeteria. Kids were decked with Hawaiian leis and tables were topped in tropical centerpieces. Pizza, chicken wings, cookies and ice cream were served with cups of island punch garnished with sliced oranges.
