Exploration and discovery in three action-packed days.
Middle School students had maximum fun during Mini Community Week, which took place September 29 - October 1.
Thinking Outside the Classroom
Students went on field trips (Shalom Farms, Putt Putt Golf, and Bogey Sports Park), tie-dyed shirts, s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out for yoga on Wilton Lawn, and spruced up the Bryan Innovation Lab (BIL) community garden beds.
Inside the BIL, students exercised their teamwork muscles with a STEM challenge: Half of the students used a Rigamajig (a large-scale wooden building kit) to construct a “rolling siege tower” and half of the students Make-a-Fort (giant interlocking cardboard pieces) to create a fort. The object? To see if the Rigamajig could topple the fort.
The Write Stuff + Good Sports
In the Library, students had a mini lesson on how to write a friendly letter. Then, using fancy pens, they wrote letters that will be distributed to senior centers in the Richmond area. Spartans also played flag football, ran relay races, and practiced their team-building skills on the field.
The week ended on a sweet note when the Kona Ice truck visited the campus. Thank you to everyone who made Mini Community Week a HUGE success. Check out the great photos from Mini Community Week!
