Gaynor Spring Carnival Brightens a Rainy Day

Posted on Monday, May 6th, 2019

The weather outside may have been dreary, but the mood inside Stephen Gaynor School was sunny and inviting for the school’s second-ever Spring Carnival. The atmosphere was set before anyone entered the doors with an entertainer on stilts dancing through the raindrops and welcoming everyone to the carnival. Hundreds of Gaynor students, siblings, parents, friends, and faculty and staff enjoyed the afternoon together.

The event took place throughout the North and South Buildings, from mini golf in the gymnasium, to carnival games in the North Building cafeteria, to inflatable slides in the Field House, and even a full-sized car(pool karaoke) in the South Building lobby. The younger participants were drawn to facepainting and the “photopia” ball pit, while the more discerning pre-teens and teens lined up to try the latest in virtual reality offerings and try their hands at the LED arcade in the Performing Arts Center.

Attendees purchased raffle tickets to win prizes like Head of School for a day, class ice cream party, front row seats for the Winter Concert, a Brooklyn Nets VIP experience, and a selection of Lancôme products. Congratulations to the lucky winners!

Held every other year, the Spring Carnival has proven to be a great way to bring the entire Gaynor community together for a day of fun.
