Winter carnival fun

For more than 40 years, the staff and students at Sturgeon Creek School have held their annual winter carnival on the last day before March Break. Starting with a pancake breakfast for the families, the older students always have organized and supervised various events for the younger ones. This year, everyone enjoyed a great day inside and outside in the winter weather.
