As Term 2 came to a close 4th graders were getting their game faces on. By having good behavior and not receiving tickets during term 2 they had earned the privilege to compete in 4th grade's fiercest competition. All four classes would face off in challenges, one minute long, to see who would come out victorious! 4th graders showed their strength during the tissue pull, cup stack and junk in the trunk. They showed persistence in the ping pong bounce and the ice cream drop and they showed creativity during the dizzy mummy and face the cookie. Skill, teamwork, and respectfulness earned each class points towards the victory.  Eliza Memmott in Mrs. Funes' class says, "My favorite part was holding down the tissue box for the tissue pull!".
Hayden Ellis in Mrs. Anderson's class was impressed with the candy bar break activity saying, "Hardly anyone could open the candy bars with a plastic knife and fork! It was funny to watch!" We do a lot of learning in 4th grade, so the best part was that students got to be rewarded for working hard during term 2. Seeing them work together and cheering for their classmates was terrific.
