Third Annual Discovery Day featuring special visit from Goldy Gopher

Tuesday, June 14, 2016 - 14:35

Crestview Elementary School held its Third Annual Discovery Day on June 7, an end of the school year event that includes Crestview students, staff, parents and community members. Throughout the day, every student at Crestview participated in different enrichment classes of their choice.

This year as a surprise to students, Goldy Gopher, the mascot for the University of Minnesota, came to the event to spend time with the students. He entertained students during lunch and recess and joined in on discovery day activities with the students.

Each student had the opportunity to pick four sessions to attend from a wide variety of engaging classes led by parent volunteers and teachers. Options ranged from yoga calm to kickball, juggling, planting seeds, making fairy gardens and pet rocks, and more. Students had the chance to explore new areas of interest and learn new skills.
