Patterson Junior High School teacher Nancy Goolsby was dunked during the school’s second annual Jacks Fest, held Friday with face painting, temporary tattoos, baseball speed throw, cake walk, balloon pop and other activities. Tickets were sold for 50 cents each and were needed to participate in each of the activity and game booths. Prizes consisted of candy, toys, fast food coupons and free movie passes, but the most sought after were the free-dress day passes and hat passes. The Fest was also open to Berwick, Bayou Vista and Hattie Watts elementary students and Berwick Junior High School students, whose schools also honored the passes for free dress and hat days. A total of $3,160 was raised during the event, the school’s only fundraiser. All monies raised goes to the purchase of classroom supplies for teacher and student use, new books for the library, and for items used as behavior incentives.
