Students were smiling and laughing on as El Dorado County Office of Educaion’s Charter Campus Program held its 19th annual Fall Fest, a partnership between Campus Charter and neighboring Indian Creek Elementary.
Charter Alternative Program students hosted approximately 130 Indian Creek first graders this year with 12 fun-filled, student-run stations, including cake walk, face painting and pin-the-nose-on-the-pumpkin.
The event was a treat for first graders and high school students alike.
The festival is an opportunity for campus students to take on a leadership role. The high school students spent more than a month preparing individual trick-or-treat bags for each first grader, making posters and signs, and preparing the booths.
Campus student leaders led groups of 10 first graders through the rotation of booths.
Pat Caldie, campus social science teacher, commented that Fall Fest is a “highlight of the fall season for our students. They really rose to the challenge of making it a fun experience for the Indian Creek first graders.”
