It was a warm Wednesday as Open Door School students, faculty and staff enjoyed the sun by hunting for treasure, maneuvering through inflatable obstacle courses and cooling off with water wars.

Kali Enix, who is wrapping up her first year of teaching at Open Door, said the Fun Day is a great way for the students to socialize and enjoy being outside.

“It’s just something where they can go out and have form of release,” Enix said. “There are no classes and we are out here all day except for lunch.”

The event is also a great way for students with classrooms on different floors, who may not interact together on a normal day, to get together and have fun, Enix said. She said they especially seemed to enjoy the water activities.

The water was nice, but the inflatables were student Nikki Hammond’s favorite part of Fun Day. She said she enjoyed the bouncy castle most, but the obstacle course was fun too.

Whether they were spiking a volleyball, throwing a beanbag in a Cornhole game or just enjoying each other’s company, there were many smiles to be seen during Fun Day.
