"I'm so excited the weather shaped up for our picnic," said Jodi Nichipor, a parent working the baked goods table. The picnic was rescheduled from last night when the weather was still rainy.
"We expect a great turnout despite the date change," said Barbara Brusini, PTG vice president this year.
For the school only being two grade levels this year, there were still plenty of parents and students out eating dinner at picnic tables, kids playing on the "Kid's Castle" playground, and people finding yummy treats to indulge in.
"They're so good! So yummy," said Ariel Finkle, a fifth grader. She was talking about the baked goods that were free to kids and parents. Cookies, cupcakes, and other treats were available for all to take.
There were also mums and sweatshirts for sale to raise money for the school.
Principal Beth Cauley was engaged in conversation at all times with parents and students alike. This is the first school event for her as the new principal of Hanaford.
"I'm so glad to have this opportunity to get to know all of the families from the Hanaford community," said Cauley. Students ran over to pose for a picture with their new principal.
"This picnic is fun," said Dominic Mollicone, a fourth grader from Hanaford.
