Hundreds flocked to Covenant Academy for its annual Spring Fling, the event offering fun, food and games all in the name of helping out the educational institution.The private educational academy has been serving the Warren County area for 10 years and is presently offering classes for students kindergarten through ninth grade. According to headmaster Alan Smith, the school will begin offering sophomore classes next year as part of its plan to increase one grade per year until the academy becomes a complete K-12 school.The Spring Fling is aimed at helping fund the various activities of the school, which now boasts 122 students.“One thing we did in the days leading up to the event was a project called Pennies for Pies,” Smith said, noting each grade level collected pennies with the third grade class raising the most money and the opportunity to put a pie in the face of administrators. “I came right from the dunking booth to get a pie in my face.”The pie in the face event capped the afternoon-long festival which saw various games held in the classroom areas.“We try to have something for children of all ages,” Smith said.
