Junior high students participated in the first annual Homeroom Olympics during the week of May 4-8.
Students in junior high homerooms wore a different style bandana during the week to represent their team. Each day, the homeroom had a different task to work on including a giant word find, which included all of the CBA themed words and math logic puzzles. The homerooms also competed to see how much change they could bring in, which was measured by weight (over 300 pounds) and old blankets and towels (over 40 bags), which will be donated to the SPCA and Helping Hounds.
The week was capped off with a night of games and fun, including a scavenger hunt, scooter races, three-legged races, a contest of who could build the biggest house of cards, a contest to identify the teacher’s baby picture and a chocolate pudding pie eating contest. Senior high students helped out with the game night.
Faculty members Gretchen Pledger and Peter Paris organized the Homeroom Olympics competition.
“We had a great week of community building and friendly competition, “Pledger said. “We look forward to making this an annual event.”
