Mispillion Elementary School held their Second Annual Fall Festival on Saturday, September 20. The event is a combination fund raiser for the Mispillion Parent Teacher Partnership (PTO) and a way for students to celebrate fall with fun activities at the school.

“This is a way for students to see their teachers in a different light,” said Susan Donahue, Principal of the school. “Sometimes students, especially at the elementary school level, believe that teachers only exist in the classroom, and these types of fun activities let them see that they can be fun as well.”

The event offered students the opportunity to play games such as cornhole and ring toss. The Milford High School FFA set up a petting zoo outside the school with goats, sheep, rabbits and other animals. In addition, a photo booth was set up on the stage in the gym and each student was given a ticket for a free photo in the booth. Students could also get their face painted, get glitter tattoos and participate in several arts and crafts stations.

As the students entered the building, they were able to purchase a ticket for $5 that had sections for each station at the event. As they completed the station, they were able to get their ticket stamped. There was also a raffle for items donated by vendors.

“The vendors were able to set up a table by donating an item for the raffle,” Mrs. Donahue said. “We have raffle items such as gift cards to local restaurants, Thirty-one bags and much more.”

Mispillion Elementary School is the newest school in the Milford School District, entering their fourth year this year. It is located next to Lulu M. Ross Elementary School on Lovers Lane in Milford.
