Every quarter, Mount View Club and Mount View Elementary partner to host a family night event for families of the Club and those attending Mount View Elementary.
The fall and spring family nights were cancelled earlier last year due to the COVID pandemic. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands had hosted successful virtual bingo, cooking & reading nights in the fall which gave them the idea to host a virtual family night!
Club Director, Tom Linnell, had this to say, “With the recent announcement of OPS going back to 100% in person schooling, Principal Searl and I felt it was a good time to try hosting a virtual family night, together.”
They began by meeting virtually to discuss how Boys & Girls Clubs hosted their virtual nights, made a game plan to get things accomplished and began promoting it to family, staff and students!
“On Wednesday February 11th, 2021, the Mount View Club and Mount View Elementary held our first ever virtual Family Bingo Night. We had an amazing turn out and a lot of fun during the event,” said Tom.
The virtual family night was a success! Kids, families and staff were laughing and had a wonderful time together! “With the success of this night, we are looking forward to doing another virtual night in spring of 2021,” Tom added.
