East Elementary 4th and 5th grade earn bowling trip

Fourth and fifth grade students from East Elementary had a good end to their school week.

The elder students at East enjoyed a pizza lunch and an afternoon of cosmic bowling Friday at Thunder Rolls Bowling Center.

The food and field trip were rewards for the students earning a “paws”, said teacher Britni Morton. A paws field trip is given for students earning a certain amount of stickers as a result of good behavior and responsibility over a given amount of time, like a month, Morton said.

“Stuff like remembering to bring their planners, getting things signed or behaving well,” she said. “We’ve gone ice skating before, had a play-day at Loudy-Simpson and come bowling before.”

The students got a pizza lunch, then headed to bowl under the black lights at Thunder Rolls, with the pins glowing and disco-style lights shining across the alley. Many had names or messages written in highlighter on their arms to show off in the black light.

“It’s a fun day,” Morton said.
