THURS. APR. 5: The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes participated in a state assessment kick off assembly. They started by competing in a minute to win it game called "Suck it up." Students and their teachers had to use a straw to suck a M&M up out of a bowl and transfer it to a different bowl. Their second game was a Saran wrap ball. Those were packed with candy and classroom economy cash! It was a fun assembly to get the elementary headed up for assessments that begin the week of Apr. 9!
