Mispillion Elementary School held their first Fall Festival on Saturday, September 21. The newest edition to the Milford School District, Mispillion Elementary School began its third year three weeks ago. The state-of- the- art facility is located next to the campus of Lulu Ross Elementary on Lovers Lane and provides educational programming for approximately 720 students in grades 1 through 5.

The Parent Teacher Partnership (PTP) at Mispillion Elementary helped to host the fall event, welcoming students into the school for fun activities including games, crafts, pumpkin bowling and a petting zoo. Third grade teacher Diana Brode organized the event along with the PTP.

“The Fall Festival is a time for students to come out to the school for something other than work,” commented Brode. “We want them to have fun at school with their family.”

The event originated from a desire to have an event like Mispillion’s sister school Lulu Ross Elelmentary’s Spring Carnival. Mispillion Principal Susan Donahue feels the Fall Feztival highlights the back to school celebration while showing families that they are part of the community by highlighting groups such as the Girls Scouts and Parks & Recreation.

“A Back To School event is important to reach our families and to show them that the school is part of the community,” commented Donahue. “We want to provide more for our students beyond an education.”
