Family Fun Night
The future Dragons of Clinton City Schools bombarded the doors of Clinton High School Hollingsworth Sportsplex on Thursday, Jan. 23.

More than 550 parents and students attended the inaugural Family Fun Night, a collaborative effort between Clinton City Schools and Clinton High School.

A variety of physical activity stations were set up in the complex including ninja courses, golf, basketball, football, yoga, cup stacking, frisbee throwing, and much more.

Clinton High School students volunteered their time to help manage the stations and interact with students.

Coaches from several high school sports took time out of their busy schedules to come interact with the elementary students and parents.

Dr. Caleb Tipton, principal at Clinton High School, welcomed the families to the campus.

“This was an extremely successful event,” said Kelly Johnson, director of Clinton City Schools. “It gave our parents and students an opportunity to have some fun while showcasing the wonderful facilities and programming of Clinton High School. Our elementary students enjoyed interacting with the high school students.

“The level of participation shows that it was a wonderful community evening,” she said. “It is events like this that make Clinton such a wonderful city to raise a family. We appreciate CHS collaborating with us on this event. I would also like to thank Terri Kerley, Leslie Tumblin, Laura Roberts and E.T. Stamey for planning and organizing on behalf of Clinton City Schools. Great night.”
