On Jan. 31, the grade 6 advisories spent the afternoon rotating among three different activities, while the grades 7 and 8 students watched the Upper School Dance Show.
Sixth graders were split into three groups. Students spent time with English teacher Rebecca Williams doing an activity called “My Multicultural Self” in which they looked at the different things in their lives that make up their individual cultures. Students then discussed the similarities and differences among the groups. With P.E. teacher CJ Cali, the advisories had fun running relays and doing team-building activities in the gym. Finally, with math teacher Margaret Huntley , the students made Valentine’s Day cards, which will be distributed to the elderly through Meals on Wheels. In all, the students made 275 cards with origami hearts and special notes for the recipients.
The kids had a great time and feedback from the advisors was positive.
