Fun at the Fair

Another successful fair in the books! What a fun fair weekend! The weather was beautiful for the parade on Friday, for all the fair activities throughout the weekend, and it was even beautiful when 7th and 8th graders picked up trash on Monday morning!


Altenburg Public School is so lucky to be a part of the best little fair in the land!

Miss Jessika Ray

East Perry Fair 2021

The week leading up to the fair, the first and second grade classes have been practicing how to walk on the road for the parade that happened on September 24th. We were able to practice a couple of times which grew their excitement for the parade and fair itself. We practiced how to wave to our family and friends who will be watching us from the side. We practiced how to have fun while still representing our great school. 

Before beginning the parade, the first and second grade students along with the rest of their peers waited patiently and anxiously for our walk to begin. They were excited to see their families and friends who sat on the sides of the road. Throughout the parade, the students excitedly told Mrs. Schnurbusch and Miss Ray what they were going to do once they finally got to the fair grounds. Needless to say, they were excited for the East Perry Fair 2022.

Miss Ray and her students

Have a great week!
