Libby’s three afterschool activities, Science Action Club, 4H, and the Afterschool Program held their annual family night last Thursday at the Libby Elementary School’s commons.
Parents were invited to see what their students are learning in the programs, eat chili and cinnamon rolls that students helped to prepare, and to take a parent survey about Libby’s afterschool activities.
Mandy Bell, coordinator of the afterschool activities said “We’ve had a great turnout and great parent input this year. We’ve also done some wonderful activities that have really enriched our lives and theirs.”
The families in attendance also got to taste test beet humus and watch a slideshow of their kids’ afterschool activities throughout the school year.
