It didn’t take long for students to see that teacher Lindsey Brown’s idea for a school fund-raiser was a good idea.

Brown planned a one-evening version of the traditional school lock-in — normally an overnight party where students are required to stay and no one is allowed to enter in after start time.

The lock-in was held Friday, March 8, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Students could choose from all-you-can-eat pizza, face painting, dancing, board games, puzzles, movies, a cakewalk, volleyball and basketball and an extreme food challenge.

The whole school was invited and about 100 students plus staff members showed up for the evening.

“We only do it once a year,” said Lori Perdew, Riverbend library assistant. “It’s a great way to make a little bit of money for the school and to offer a free night of fun and safety for the students.”

Teachers manned the different stations where students could enjoy pizza, board games, floor games and dancing.

“Everyone seemed to have a great time,” Perdew said.

Funds raised at the lock-in will be used for school projects here.
