Fun Friday!

Jenell Alvarez

Fun Friday is a beloved activity amongst many students, as it allows them to leave school and have some fun under the supervision of the school staff members. Students can choose three activities: bowling, rollerblading, or staying at school. It’s always exciting for students to pick where to spend their Fun Friday. Students spent their morning in class, but everyone hopped on the bus to their desired destination after lunch.

The first option that many students tend to pick is bowling; this took place at Albion in a small place with catchy music. Students picked their sides and competed against each other to see who would get the most scores in bowling. Emily Smith, who went bowling, adds experience as a partner with two teachers trying to compete with others. “Honestly, it was pretty fun, considering I’m not the best at bowling. Everyone was having fun, and it was pretty easy to get the hang of it. My friend and I got closer to the teachers and bonded with them while trying to go against each other. It all went well, thankfully.” When asked if the school should continue with these activities and if there should be more, she replies, “I think that the school should make more of these days; it gets the gets to be excited about going to school because I know many don’t have the energy to go so this can help in motivating them to participate and go to school. Fun Fridays like this can also help students be relieved from schoolwork and stress, which can help them do better at school. 

The second option was rollerblading; students got to skate with their friends and vibe to their favorite music in the background. This is a great way to socialize with other students and help them escape their outer shell. Students had the choice to buy anything they wanted. Some played in the laser tag area the most, saying they didn’t know how to skate. Levi Reymond adds how much fun he had with his friends, “we all were laughing so much since everyone was falling to the ground; basically, it was pretty funny to watch since a decent amount of people didn’t know how to skate, especially my friends.” 

The third option was staying at school; students could go to the gym or do schoolwork. Ben Reiniche adds how it wasn’t so dull despite people thinking it was the worst option. “It wasn’t so bad; we weren’t required to do work. It was just if you wanted to do it, which was good.” He shares how people were mostly in the gym playing basketball or whatever games they wanted to play.

Students return to school before the day ends to get all their belongings and go home. Fun Friday was enjoyed by everyone. Students look forward to seeing more of these in the future. Thanks to all the staff members and the people who had a role in making this FUN day happen!
