(St.Joseph,MO) Kids at Carden Park Elementary got a little soggy Friday afternoon. Students with 90 percent attendance for the second term were rewarded with a water party.Students in kindergarten through sixth grade explored 10 water stations.

Third grade teacher Morgan Skaith said the party was the perfect way to blow off some steam and reward students for making attendance a priority.

“They’ve been a little squirrely, its the end of the year and that summer weather is going on. So just being able to be out here and celebrate their attendance with the kids and have some fun at the end of the year has been a great activity for them,” Skaith.

In addition to celebrating student achievement at the water party, the school is also celebrating being a new grant recipient. The Carden Park received a $7,300 grant from an anonymous donor to be put towards attendance incentives for next year.

Summer-like weather has taken hold and will stick around for the next several days. For tonight, an isolated shower or storm is possible early on but we should dry out overnight. Lows will be mild in the upper 60s.
