Avalon Schools' carnival creates a night to remember Old fashioned fun helps create bonds of friendship for kids BY CARLOS MARTINEZ Avalon Schools celebrated 40 or more years of carnival excitement on Friday, Oct. 3. It started with the traditional Carnival Dinner with delicious food prepared by the parents of seniors at the high school who worked and planned out the event over the last three weeks. Following dinner, the partici- pating students were free to enjoy an evening of fun, playing car- nival games such as a golf putt, the clown toss, winning goldfish prizes, joining in a cake walk, face painting, taking basketball shots from the foul line and plenty more. There were also many des- serts being sold by members of the junior class and snow cones that were sold by the kids from fresh- man class. The climax of the evening, however, was the crowning of the King and Queen of the event: Nathan Jimenez and Kiya Rose Hernandez. Avalon Schools staff mem- bers said they wanted to thank all the parents, students, teachers and anyone who made the event possible and created a wonder- ful memory that will live within the hearts of the students for the rest of their lives.
