Lunchtime beach bums: FKE students celebrate Beach Day

FLOYDS KNOBS — From sunshine and warmth to nearly freezing temperatures and sleet, they still laid out their beach towels and lounged with their lunch.

Students at Floyds Knobs Elementary School celebrated Beach Day, something principal Elaine Murphy said they’ve done annually for about four years.

“It’s just a good way to break up the old winter doldrums,” Murphy said. “After so many days of cloudy weather, everyone kind of flattens out. This brings a little excitement back to them.”

Students wore sunglasses, swimming goggles and beach hats as they put down beach towels in the lunchroom. Upbeat music was played as students sat together and ate.

Sarah Pierce, administrative intern, said students enjoy pretending it’s summer and having fun in the middle of their day.

“It’s just something we do every February,” Pierce said. “When the weather gets gloomy, we try to bring a little sunshine.”
