8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game

Last Friday, we held our annual 8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game. Every year the 8th-graders get the chance to go up against their teachers in a 25 minute, full-court contest. It was a lot of fun listening to students cheer on their fellow students as they brought their best game against some of the teachers. 

Most cheer for the student team, but, every year, there is always a small group of 9th-graders who cheer for the teachers.

Both sides played well, and several made some great shots, but, unfortunately for the 8th-graders, the teachers came out victorious and defended their undefeated title. We do, however, wish the best of luck to next year's 8th-grade team.

Earlier in the year teachers played volleyball against the 9th-graders and will be going against 7th-graders in a game of kickball sometime in the spring.

We once again have 5 fabulous students who have been nominated and chosen for our Excellent Explorer Award for term 2.  Here are the lucky winners:  Brendan Snyder:  Brendan really participates, and loves school!  He does his work correctly too, and he plays with classmates that are being left out.  Maggie Jones:  She makes me feel good inside and is very kind to people around her.  She is also good at paying attention in class, and even out of school.  Sadie Burtenshaw:  She always takes initiative to pick up a piece of trash and she is nice to everybody, and plays with everyone.  Jason Visentin:  Jason is always helping others.  He always volunteers to help both the students in our class and the teacher.  He is patient with others and is a buddy to anyone who needs cheering up!  Jamie Tiapson:  She is always on task and I've seen her outside and there was this one kid who saw her and she came up to him and asked if he wanted to play.  I've seen her more than once do that.  She is probably one of the kindest people I've ever known.  I've never seen her be rude or even mad. 

Thank you, students, for your great example and choosing to:  Be Kind ... Show Respect ... Work Hard!
