SEELEY LAKE – Seeley Lake Elementary (SLE) students finished their Snow School with a final Snow Day at Camp Paxson, Feb. 25. Students wore their snowman costumes and enjoyed games including snow graffiti, Tic-Tac-Snow, snow relays and a snowball throwing competition.

The 21st Century Grant funded Snow School on Thursday's early out. Students in first through eighth grade were invited to participate in a variety of snow-related activities including skiing, sledding, snow shoeing, ice skating and building snow sculptures for Winterfest. SLE teachers and community volunteers worked with the students throughout the winter.

Seeley Lake community members Cheri and Steve Thompson helped the students create snowmen costumes on the Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the final Snow Day. Students decorated white compactor plastic bags, hats and tiaras and masks.

"There is no preconceived notion about what the outfits are suppose to look like," said Cheri. "They could be whatever they wanted to be."

The students wore their costumes for the party while they enjoyed pizza and then played games.

"I think it's been very successful," said SLE staff member Patty Dillree. "I think we have had an awesome turnout."

"It's been all about having fun in the snow," said community volunteer Adrian Vanderwielen.
