A fortune teller, a tattoo booth, face-painting, bracelet making, a slackline, juggling, and the super awesome Dunk Tank (which claimed about 20 victims) and many more fun games …
Such a rich line-up could only mean one thing: the ACS Spring Fest!
Held on May 21, this year’s fest was even more over the top than usual because it was fashioned after the Coachella theme and decked with awesome decoration all created by dedicated and creative ACS moms, who spent over a month designing and cutting before hanging everything on the Green Field.
For the first time ever the Spring Fest also featured a Color Festival and MCing by Anthony and Frankie (an ACS alumna) of Virgin Radio fame, as well as a wide array of food vendors, including a popular food truck serving hot burgers to long lines of hungry kids and their parents.
Entertainment was provided almost non-stop from noon to 6 pm by our very own students from Early Years straight through High School.
The fest could not have taken place without the collaborative effort of faculty, staff, students, parents and of course ACS’s impressive facilities and operations personnel. The teams were led by Deputy Head of School Karim Abu-Haydar and Director of Alumni Relations Danai El-Hajj Ibrahim, both of whom received a public congratulatory e-mail note from Head of School Hamilton Clark.
Of course as is commonly known, the ACS Spring Fest is not merely fun and games under the sun. Proceeds from the day all go toward the ACS Scholarship Fund, which means the positive effect is more than doubled.
“Coming together as a whole community and enjoying the day provides children with a different sense of all the relationships within a school community,” commented EY Principal Sawsan Yaseen, following the event.
