With a chill in the outside air, families flocked to Northwest Elementary School on Jan. 16 for the annual Winter Wonderland event on an evening that certainly felt like winter.

There was a strong turnout for the annual family fun night, as Northwest’s first, second and third graders were joined by parents as well as older and younger siblings for winter-themed activities. Winter Wonderland started with a sing-along in the cafeteria followed by bingo. Instead of numbers, bingo cards were filled with winter words.

In classrooms, students participated in fun learning activities with assistance from members of the National Junior Honor Society at Edmund W. Miles Middle School. They combined glue, saline solution, baking soda, blue food coloring and glitter to make slime. The experiment combined math and science as students measured and mixed ingredients. Teachers read winter-themed books and children were able to personalize their own mugs to take home.
