SGO Purim Carnival 5774

This past Friday, March 14th, the SGO 2014 created the first Purim Carnival in a long time for the entire Yeshivah of Flatbush. After weeks of planning, we came up with tons of fun games and activities to get the students excited to celebrate the festive holiday of Purim. With games from knock down the cans, to ring toss, to bowling, the students had a blast. Other activities included balloon darts, get the hockey puck past Stephen Esses, face painting, iron the beads, balloon animals, hamentashen making, and even a BOUNCY HOUSE that was enjoyed by all. There was a beautiful lunch provided by our fabulous lunch ladies including make your own ice cream sundaes with colorful toppings, salads, pastas, bagels and so much more. There were also popcorn, cotton candy and pretzels being served. 
The smiles on students' faces were priceless and the spirit and enthusiasm of Purim filled the air. Events like these enhance our students' experience in the Yeshivah and give them a chance to bond with their fellow classmates and teachers in an informal, out-of-classroom environment. Thank you to the students, juniors and seniors running the booths and faculty for your enthusiasm and for your active involvement that allowed the program to come together beautifully. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did planning it and we were sad to see it end. We hope enhanced your Purim experience here at the Yeshivah of Flatbush and that it was a Purim you'll never forget! We would like to thank Ralph and Ami Sasson for sponsoring the bouncy house and the cotton candy, pretzel, and popcorn machines.
