The Little Lancers and their buddies hunted for eggs on the softball field during the 8th annual Little Lancer Easter Egg Hunt. 

The child development students enjoyed watching their buddies collect eggs.

“The kids really had fun and sprinted around the outfield to get the eggs that were scattered around. I loved seeing all the smiles on the kids’ faces,” said senior Hannah Lemen. Lemen is a Child Development 3 student.  Because she has completed the full course sequence, she will be eligible for college credit and certification.

“As a class, we were all very happy that the weather turned out okay because the kids had been looking forward to this all week. The kids had so much fun collecting the eggs, but probably loved eating all their candy the most,” said Grace Pritchett. This is Pritchett’s third year as a part of the child development team.

Key Club members spent time filling the eggs on March 27th. Members hid the eggs during third period.

Key Club secretary Colleen Avila helped organize and plan the event. “We’ve done it in years past,” she said. “We have a club meeting to fill the whole bin of eggs. We always make a few huge eggs that we fill extra full with candy as a surprise for the kids. And the kids were so cute. I’m glad they were so happy to find the eggs.”

The egg hunt was postponed from its intended PREP time due to weather conditions. However, the day quickly improved and Kaycee Morris, this year’s Child Development intern, pulled everything together for the egg hunt to continue as planned.

“It was really amazing how Kaycee Morris threw the whole event together to make it happen for the kids. It wasn’t supposed to rain today,” said teacher Mrs. Kate Lane.
