   Family fun night occurred on Thursday, October 19 in the Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School gym. Family fun night is a chance for students in kindergarten through second grade and their parents to come to the school and have fun. The families took part in physical events such as stuck in the mud, color tag, parachutes, and octopus tag.

 

    Octopus tag is a game where you run across the gym floor trying not to get hit by a ball. The boys are named as sharks and girls are named as mermaids. Mr. Bass calls a name out and the shark or mermaid has to run across the floor trying not to get hit. If a shark or mermaid is hit, they sit on the floor trying to tag others that run across. Color tag is the same concept and your color is determined by the color of your clothing. Mr. Bass will call out a color and the students or family members have to run across the court trying not to get tagged. 

    

    The families warmed-up by doing tony chestnut. That is a series of touching your toes, then your knees, your chest, and finally your head, then repeating. They used a parachute for activities such as making a mushroom out of the parachute and sharks and lifeguards. You make the mushroom by throwing the parachute in the air and going inside of the parachute. When inside, the students and parents sit on the edge of the parachute holding it in the air. Sharks and lifeguards have family members with their legs covered by the parachute. Under the parachute, there are "sharks" that grab your leg and try to pull you under. It is the lifeguards job to make sure that the student or parents do not go under the parachute. 

   

    Lila Carpenter said, "I had fun and my favorite part was going under the parachute."

    

    "My favorite part was the parachutes," said Grant Heinen.
