The KES fourth-grade class winners are receiving their root beer floats for having the most kids showing up for the Booster-sponsored Bleacher Creature nights last winter. The Booster Club paid for the elementary kids’ gate fee for one Boys’- and one Girls’-basketball games last winter, and the grade that had the most kids show up won root beer floats for their whole class. As they sat in the bleachers they also received foam fingers, hats and blue and gold beads. Boosters’ president Bob Merchant, along with vice president Brian Becker served the fourth-grade class last Thursday, May 22, at the Kimball Elementary School. Submitted photo.
