Wednesday, November 6, was the first “family night” in the schools history. Students were not given homework and all activities were over by 4:30 with the exception of football because of playoff practice. Kids were encouraged to spend time with their families playing board games or watching movies. Kenston was not the only school to participate as the “family night” took place nationally. This along with other school events have been part of a new mission to promote mental and social health among students. Senior Jackson Scott said, “I used my night off to get food with my mom and sister which I normally don’t have time to do.” Studies have shown that even just 20 minutes spent with family can help reduce stress. Hopefully students were able to benefit from the free night and the tradition will continue in the upcoming years.
