Cactus Canyon will host FITE Nite from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29. The event gives families an opportunity to learn what their kids has been doing in school.
FITE Nite, which stands for Families Interacting Through Education, will be filled with games, food, music, and other events. This event will be on March 29, from 5:30 to 7:30. This is an event where families can interact, connect, and learn.
“We will have minute games and other competitive activities that allow people to earn prizes,” language arts teacher John Leal said. “The jazz band will be there for some of the time, we will have face painting, and some other carnival activities.”
One of the main events that will be going on at FITE Nite is the Chemistry Cookoff, where student bring either an entree, main dish, or dessert that they have made and explain the physical and chemical properties that occur while making it. These students will serve samples of their food along with a presentation.
Mr. Leal and science teacher Regan Roach are two of the teachers that helped plan this night, which takes lots of preparation to make it successful.
“We have been planning this event for most of third quarter off and on, when we can all meet together,” Mr. Leal said. “I help plan some of the games and I, along with Mrs. Roach have students in positions to help us setup, takedown, and cleanup the area.”
Although there are going to be many things going on at the event, it is mostly about the families being able to interact and have a good time while learning a little bit about what is going on at school.
“This allows us to demonstrate not just student learning, but it also allows for families to connect over the activities,” Leal said.
