Each year, Primrose's across the nation participate in a Spring Fling event benefitting Save the Children and a local charity of our choosing. This year, we elected The Mack Impact and The Dragonfly Home.
The Mack Impact: Mackenzie Asher was born on May 6th, 2006 and passed away at 11 years old after a battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. To honor Mackenzie’s memory, her Dad and Step-Mom created The Mack Impact in her name to give other Oklahoma children fighting cancer an opportunity to have amazing “bucket list” experiences during their downtime from the hospital.
The Dragonfly Home Human Trafficking Relief and Restoration Center: They are Oklahoma’s very first and only state-certified crisis center dedicated to helping human trafficking survivors.
Due to COVID-19, our event looked a little different this year. In leu of our annual carnival, our school hosted a variety of activities for our students. We hosted food trucks weekly, held a classroom art auction, prepared silent auction baskets, had penny wars, a spirit week, and our first ever Spring Fling Field Day for our older classrooms. They loved participating in our fun activities while supporting such worthy causes!
Our field day was so fun that it drew the attention of the local news! Check us out on News 9, starting at around minute 1:00 of the news segment!
