Gray Stone Day School held its annual Knightfest on Oct. 7 for both middle and high school students.

Preceding the homecoming soccer game, the event was planned and executed by Melissa Eudy’s high school Leadership class.

For the past two months, the class worked to secure vendors alongside parent volunteers.

Leading up to Knightfest, the Leadership class also planned Spirit Week that included a pep rally celebrating all fall student-athletes and a lip-sync battle involving staff, faculty and administration.

While middle schoolers enjoyed inflatables, cornhole and face painting, high school students dressed in neon colors enjoyed a neon light-up photo booth and music.

Food was available for purchase from food trucks as well as the Lance, the parent-organization for the school.
