Barn Dance a Chance for Fun Before Regents Week
Friday, May 26, 2017
The gym was transformed into a good old-fashioned Barn Dance for the students in Special Programs at the Southern Adirondack Education Center on Friday, May 25.
There were photo opportunities for students to don a cowboy hat and handlebar mustaches and stand in front of a big red barn with bales of hay.
Students had a great time dancing to country and rock music. Fun games such corn hole and pantyhose bowling were available to students by using their Boys Town points. Snacks and drinks were also available.
Principal for Special Programs Linda Beck-Fragale explained that this is the second annual Barn Dance. Often students in these programs don’t have an opportunity to get together outside of school because they live in different towns. She said, “we wanted to give the students an opportunity to get together and socialize, all together, as Special Programs. So we decided to hold the dance during the day so they could do that. It is a great time for staff and students to let loose before Regents exams."
