Every year NSSA holds a special “Sibling Day,” when families and friends are invited to spend a fun day with students, clients and staff. Siblings have a chance to interact with their own brothers and sisters, and to meet up with other siblings and family members like themselves.
It was another scorcher last week for this year’s Sibling Day, but students, clients and families made the best of it by playing on the giant bouncy waterslide, splashing in the pool and lunching in the shade.
The playground was put to good use, as well.
The NSSA Parent Association treated students and clients to a delicious lunch from the Eat Me, Drink Me food truck, while staff enjoyed a hero and accompanying sides.
Families and friends mingled and enjoyed watching the children (even the adult ones!) having a fun day.
NSSA closed out its summer session with the 5th Annual Sibling Day on Thursday, August 18, 2016. Invitations were made to students’ and clients’ families to join us for an afternoon of fun, food and friends.There were indoor and outdoor activities, a waterfall slide bouncy house, wonderful Grill Boys food truck lunch courtesy of NSSA’s Parent Association, and a prize wheel and photo booth (thanks to the artistic stylings of Tori). And kids everywhere! Sliding, swimming, scootering, prize-wheel spinning, swinging and just plain having fun. It was a wonderful way to end the Summer of 2016. See you all in the fall!!!
Once a year we invite siblings and families to join students at the Martin C. Barell School for a day of fun and activities. This year was a packed house! The big bouncy house and slide in the backyard was a hit, the playground was bustling with kids of all ages, and the classrooms were set up for arts & crafts when a little quiet time was needed. It was also Luau Day, which made for an even more festive atmosphere!
Brothers A & D slide together.
Proud big brother.
Luau Twins and Sister.
Look how sweet J is helping her big brother do his craft.
Cousins are the new siblings.
Could these brothers be any cuter?
Love it when everyone gets into the “spirit” of Spirit Week!
Once a year, on a summer day, NSSA opens its doors to brothers and sisters of students and clients for Sibling Day.
Special activities are planned – craft projects, bouncy houses, and opportunities for students to demonstrate newly-learned skills to their families.
But really, it’s just a whole lot of bonding and fun that takes place! Over the years, it has sort of become “Family” day, and parents have come to stay for the festivities, which makes it all the nicer.
And I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda thinking the dads are having more fun than the kids!!!
