Work and play: TRUS students receive first-quarter awards, then go to the Halloween Carnival

It’s been a busy week at Three Rivers Union School. An assembly was held Tuesday morning, Oct. 23, to distribute awards in citizenship, attendance, and academics to its high-achieving students.

Carnival awards

On Saturday, Oct. 26, it was once again time for — drum roll, please — the school’s Halloween Carnival. This is an event for the entire community; there is something for all ages. The Carnival has been held during the Halloween season for seven decades. 

These days, the event is sponsored by the Eagle Booster Club, the school’s parent organization. The funds raised support school programs and purchase education, athletic, music, and art supplies.

This year’s Carnival was the venue to recognize a couple of hardworking school volunteers. This year’s honorees are Eme Price and Elenor Jeter.

Kicking off the Carnival each year is the crowning of the Carnival Queen and King, eighth-graders who are selected by a school-wide vote. The 2019 Carnival Queen is Sierra Sherwood. The 2019 Carnival King is Ethan Jeter.
