The 4th grade did some bouncing of balloons up in the air.

The 2nd grade ducked and dashed with cotton on their nose.

The 3rd grade knocked their noggins to set the Tic-Tacs free.

The 6th grade piled pyramids and brought them down again.

The 1st grade chucked the Cheetos on the shaving cream capped heads.

Mrs. Ellis gave Mr. Argyle quite a big surprise!
