Penguin Palooza Pajama Jam
Over 80 girls in grades 4 through 6 and from 12 local elementary schools in their coolest pajamas, attended the Penguin Palooza Pajama Jam night of fun at Academy of Our Lady High School on April 19, 2013.
The night began with pizza and cupcakes while guests were invited to take pictures with Penelope Penguin, the AOL macot, in the pajama party themed backdrop. The presentation began with a prayer and a skit followed by performances from the AOL Cheerleaders and Crystalettes dance team.
The girls were then split into small groups for a round of activities that would take them on an adventure around the AOL campus. Slumber party themed games and activities were enjoyed by all the girls. The super star party with karaoke and dancing was one of the biggest hits followed by a penguin jewelry craft. The AOL Cheerleaders taught a cheer and played games with the participants. At the spirit salon, nails were painted in AOL blue and silver and AOL face paint and tattoos showed the girls how to express school pride. The groups even participated in an iPad scavenger hunt featuring highlights of the school.
The night ended with the entire group performing the Penguin Power cheer in the gym. Penguin Palooza is an annual event hosted by the Admissions Office.
