Van Buren Elementary School conducted its annual awards day for students Thursday. Following the celebration, 27 fifth-grade students had the opportunity to attend a "Mexican Fiesta," an event put together by school librarian instructional assistant Susie McHargue and parent Molly Varvel, along with other parents. The students -- along with the parents -- came up with the theme for the party, which took place outside. Students took part in several games during the event, including "Over and Under," where they had to undo a roll of toilet paper over and under each other without breaking it. Participating in the game here included (above, from front) Justin Gardner, Robert Branham, Savanah Houk and Holly Hapenny.
