Held in the Cuba Elementary cafeteria on March 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., more than twenty-seven elementary students and their par- ents came to partake in reading, writing, game and craft activi- ties. The event celebrated Newspaper in Education Week and the students learned more about their weekly newspaper, having fun all the while. Children were divided into groups and sent to the various activity stations headed up by Cuba Free Press employees. Joy Brandenburger, Tracy Brandenburger and Rob Viehman instructed children on how to make pressman's hats out of news- paper. Russ New and Christy Nixon assisted children in a scav- enger hunt. Coloring activities and word finds were also available at the game table. Sandy Morice read stories about reading, writing and the news- paper to students. Chris Case led a writing segment. Dori Perry was responsible for capturing the evening on "film". Robin New greeted participants at the door and recorded their attendance. After all their hard work, the students were rewarded with punch and cookies. The Cuba Free Press is intent on increasing its involvement with students. Thanks to Cuba Elementary Principal, Diane Haggard for her enthusiasm and help in coordinating the event, and thanks to all who attended. We had a great time. Be prepared for even more fun next year! :i At left: Sheila Rogers helps her daughter Alexa look through the newspaper for items for the scavenger hunt.
