East Elementary 4th and 5th grade earn bowling trip

Fourth and fifth graders from East Elementary School hang out at the lanes in Thunder Rolls Bowling Center in Craig Friday. They earned a "paws" field trip for good behavior and responsibility, and got an afternoon of bowling as a result.

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.
