The last Day of school at AJ was Fun Day! The students were placed on 5 different teams and all met in the intermediate classroom. They had about 10 minutes to come up with a team name and a cheer. The teams were: Billy Gs, Bookworms, Sparkling Zucchinis, Team Awesome, and Diamond W.
In the morning the teams rotated through 5 different stations. There was: Face Painting, Sidewalk Chalk Mural, Quick Change Relay, Obstacle Course, and Balloon Pop & Bop.
At lunch PAC barbecued hot dogs and families brought desserts and side dishes to go with them. We had a fantastic summer feast. At lunch a lot of us also got into our swimming suits to be ready for the afternoon.
Water Fun was the theme for the afternoon. The students made gigantic bubbles, tossed water balloons, rocketed down the soapy slip and slide, and tried their luck at the Fireman’s Relay and the Sponge Race. It was very wet and very fun!
To finish off a great school year we gathered in the field for the Tug-o-War. We matched up teams against teams, grades against grades, boys against girls, and adults against kids (the kids won by a long shot).
This was a great way to finish up a marvelous year! I hope everyone has a wonderful summer and don’t forget to Read, Read, Read!
