About 125 parents and children attended Raymondville School’s Family Fun Night earlier this month.

A holiday dinner was prepared by Mindy Davidson. Twyla Stone gave a short history of Missouri’s famous author Mark Twain. Stone also explained that the night’s crafts were based on Twain’s novels and stories.

The famous story of “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” led to the activity of a frog race on the gym’s stage. Based on the book “The Prince and the Pauper,” students made jeweled crowns. The character of grave-robbing Indian Joe led to making tombstones. Students also made rafts and oars based on the books “The Adventures of Mark Twain” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”

Raymondville’s next Family Fun Night is 5-8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 31. It will feature a mobile planetarium. Persons will have the opportunity to showcase their own talents at free booths. They should provide tables. To participate, contact Stone at 417-457-6237 or 573-674-3856.
