On Monday, October 2, Beekman Charter School held their annual Fall Festival. Sponsored by the PTO, the festival included games, such as the rain gutter boat race, pick a duck, and a cake walk. The children received candy as a prize after playing each game. There were also refreshments and face painting. Playing the games required tickets, and the proceeds from the sale of these tickets goes to help with various needed items for the teachers. The festival has been a Beekman staple for several years now and is great fun for kids and their families. “Oh, the kids love it!,” said Kim Griffith, PTO Vice President.
