Every year for the last twenty-some years, the Norfolk Noon Optimist Club, KNEN Radio, and the YMCA have hosted a "Cool To Be In School" pool party for students with perfect attendance for the school year. The students in Kindergarten through 4th Grade are included in the event. This is the first year that we have had someone in our family have perfect attendance.Ashlin and Justin both had perfect attendance for this past school year. They were both excited to attend and have some fun swimming.
The pool party last two hours. At the end of the party, the students were served ice cream bars and a drawing was held for prizes. There were 150 students in the City of Norfolk given certificates for perfect attendance, but there were maybe 50 students at the party. The odds of winning a prize were pretty good. Look at what these two came home with as prizes! They were sure excited!
