Isenberg has Fall Festival

SALISBURY — Several hundred people filled the campus of Isenberg Elementary for the Fall Festival.
Parent/Teacher Association President Ginger Cartwright said the goal was to expand the festival from previous years.
There were eight bounce houses with one being more than 30 feet tall. Along with the bounce houses there were pony rides, face painting, hay rides, pumpkin painting, face painting, a firetruck and several festival games.
To add to the entertainment the Overton Elementary Mini-Funk Band performed and the school planned a cake walk with nearly 100 custom cakes available.
The food court was filled with candy apples, popcorn, sno-cones, fried fish, hot dogs and pizza.
Principal Nathan Currie said he was pleased to see the community support and was very satisfied with the attendance and financial success of the Fall Festival.
The school will be participating in the matching funds grant to buy a class set of iPads for the students.
Currie said in the past three years Isenberg students have gained 19 percent in proficiency, a jump he attributes to use of technology.
The matching funds grant allows a school to raise a percentage of funding and the Board of Education will match the funds up to $10,000.
Along with the entertainment, Livingstone Girls Volleyball team and staff from Livingstone College volunteered. Cartwright said that she and Currie begin planning this summer and it was exciting to see the smiles on the children’s faces.
