Mannequin Challenge

The students are having so much fun with the Mannequin Challenge.  Ms. Chohan has received some really great videos.  There are three categories that video’s are being judged on: Best Classroom Mannequin Challenge, Best Primary Mannequin Challenge, and Best Intermediate Mannequin Challenge. The Leadership Team will be determining the winners.  Winners will receive a pizza party.  Below is a Mannequin Challenge done by Mr. Thompson’s class…Hmmm this is a strong contender for first place.

Volleyball Season

Thank you to our wonderful teachers for their time and effort in coaching our girls and boys volleyball teams.  Mr. Henderson, Ms. Shears, and Mr. Unruh…THANK YOU!  The students continued to develop their skills over the season.  Most importantly, they learned about teamwork, sportsmanship, encouraging each other, and they had FUN.
