Open Door students have ice cream party

Published 9:36am Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Open Door School student Raven Webb took her time saying “when” as teacher Curt Brady squeezed chocolate syrup into the cup already containing ice cream, gummy bears and sprinkles.

Webb said she was excited when she heard about the event because ice cream is “really good.”

The student was not alone in grabbing her spoon and digging in after adding everything from chocolate chips to gummy worms during the ice cream party Monday afternoon in the Open Door gymnasium.

Kali Enix, Open Door teacher, said when the announcement was made that morning the kids definitely showed their enthusiasm.

“I think events like this are great,” Enix said. “It gives them social interaction, a sense of community. It’s just really good for them.”

Stephanie Helms, community outreach coordinator, said she enjoys the opportunity to put on events like the ice cream party for Open Door student. Helms also thanked Rumpke for sponsoring the event.

This was Open Door School’s last big event of the year before graduation. Ceremonies will begin Thursday at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium.
