SOAR Academy’s first DINO Day was a success, according to its organizers.
“It’s been amazing,” said Kenisha Skaggs, the school’s director.
More than 200 people attended the Feb. 4 event, which included multiple stations all with dinosaur-themed fun.
Children could learn about fossils, play dinosaur bowling, watch a dinosaur puppet show or read a book about one of the prehistoric creatures.
There was gem mining with Elduets Farm, and the chance to interact with reptiles.
Skaggs geared the event toward children who were between the ages of 2 and 10 with some activities specifically for preschoolers and others for neurodivergent children. The school provides programming for neurodivergent students, and Skaggs wanted to highlight that aspect at the event.
