6th annual Family Fun Night

An exciting evening was had by all at Collingswood Middle School’s 6th annual Family Fun Night on January 14th. A record-breaking 103 families enjoyed pizza, prizes and festivities including candy bar bingo, cookie decorating and an opportunity to shop at the Scholastic Book Fair. Students also participated in an event favorite, the Crazy Cube, built by two CMS teachers. Many of the 103 families donned silly hats and fake mustaches to have their portraits taken in a photo booth. The 6th grade Learning Lab class requested contributions from near and far to aide in the more than 50 donated prizes. Flyers tickets, 76ers tickets,

autographed sports memorabilia, saloon gift certificates, and Collingswood restaurant gift certificates were just a few of the many generous donations. The Collingswood Middle School PTA and the Middle School Staff contributed greatly to the event, along with the Collingswood Education Association. Not only did CMS families take the time to attend the event, they generously donated 251 canned goods, which were donated to the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden.
