Fun nights at schools are a great way to bring students, faculty and staff together to socialize, have fun and create lasting memories. They provide an opportunity for students to take a break from the classroom pressure and connect with their friends and family in a relaxed and enjoyable setting to support their school and show off their talents.

On Friday, April 28, Farragut Primary School PTO hosted a Superhero Family Fun Night for students, families and the greater community. The event coincided with National Superhero Day so you can imagine the cool outfits that appeared. Volunteers from Farragut High and Farragut Middle schools helped the FPS PTO make the event possible.

Local businesses joined in the fun as the visitors enjoyed food from B’s Bites and Knox Dough food trucks as well as Pixar short films, popcorn donated by AMC Knoxville Classic 16 and a host of superhero themed crafts. Clean Juice was on hand with samples and kids had a chance to create their own superhero smoothie. Bricks 4 Kidz offered families a chance at the hexagonal tower challenge and the opportunity to create spin-art using a motorized LEGO technic model. PaperPie hosted a superhero-themed book fair at the event, donating 50% of sales back to the school in books and learning resources.

Reviews of the event can be summed up for all by the Jones family. Kindergartener Lucy Jones said, “I love getting to come to school and have fun parties with my family. Dressing up is the best and I love my school.” Mom Lauren Jones agrees, “I am so thankful for a school that puts on free family events for us to come and enjoy. It is a highlight of family time that we look forward to as often as possible!”
