Students are welcomed back to a new school year at PCE.

Students came back ready to be Happy Campers with a camping theme to greet them at the door of Paden City Elementary.

At the kick-off assembly, students were introduced to the “camping staff”, with some new faces to join the PCE family. Then they participated in some fun camp related games including Zip, Sleep, and Roll which was a rolling relay race.

Students then competed against staff to put up a tent. That was fun to watch! Staff and students then sang the song “Going on a Bear Hunt” and performed the chant “Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel.”

The assembly was concluded with a Happy Camper Oath/Pledge to work hard, play hard, and be kind to others throughout each day while waking up with a smile, being ready to explore, and reaching for the stars this school year.
