Game night raises funds for CES

| November 8, 2014

COSHOCTON – Supporters of Coshocton Elementary School tested their luck during a game night held Nov. 7 at Lake Park Pavilion. The event was hosted by Coshocton Elementary School PTO and gave people the opportunity to win money, play games of chance, enjoy refreshments and snap memories at the photo booth. “We wanted to do something different other than selling t-shirts or candy bars,” said Seanda Cerny Williams, PTO president. There also was a live auction. “We couldn’t have done that without the support of the community,” Williams said. Money raised from the event will help the PTO continue to fund college scholarship for students who graduated from the former Lincoln and Central elementary schools and start establishing one for CES graduates. They also are looking at getting benches for the school that encourage being buddies and not bullies and organize a grandparents’ breakfast and staff appreciation. The PTO also does what it can to boost moral for students and staff at CES throughout the year. “We have 890 students and this is our first full year as a school,” Williams said. “Overall things are going much better this year and we are getting better at working together. We definitely want to make this an annual event.”
