Northpoint’s annual fall party a popular destination

Hundreds of students crowded Northpoint Elementary School, Blaine, for its annual fall party Nov. 8.

Games and crafts kept kids and their parents busy.

The library was transformed into a bingo parlor. Kids lined up for a bean bag toss and bowling.

Students crafted turkeys out of pinecones, adding colorful feathers and googly eyes. The young artists quickly handed their feathered friends off to mom and dad, pursuing their next activity.

For many little ones, the evening marked their first school dance. Unlike a high school function, bursts of dancing were segmented with hula-hoop contests and other activities.

The fall party is typically held annually in November.

“It’s just kind of a free-floating evening to build community,” Principal Mike Callahan said.
