Celebrating another successful and productive school year, Twin Lakes School held a STAR  Bazar, complete with games, face painting, prizes and loads of fun for students.  As a reward for their dedicated academic efforts and hard work on the annual State STAR tests, teachers and parents manned game booths and gave away prizes to the excited students.

“We are so happy to provide this fun activity for the kids,” said Helen Heller, Twin Lakes’ principal.  “They have worked so hard this year and it’s great to be able to reward them for their efforts, good behavior and attendance.”

Students were given “Star-Bucks” for good behavior and attendance during STAR testing and used those bucks to play games such as Ping Pong Toss, Tic Tac Toe, Plinko, Bean Bag Toss and Football Toss.  A big Video Gaming Truck was also on campus and students enjoyed playing video games like Mario Cart and dancing to the Just Dance game.

“I like the Just Dance game, it’s really fun.  The video game truck is my favorite thing here,” said Samantha Perez, second grader.

“My favorite game is the Goal-azo game where you get to kick a soccer ball into a goal,” said kindergartner, Julian Diaz.  “The Star Bazar is really fun.”
