Got Some Culture!
The night before, I had a chance to play basketball with staff members from the high school. We played against the students in an event known as Hoops for Hope. We all had a lot of fun, and thanks to some crafty scoreboard work, the staff won.
A reflection of the event caused me to realize that nearly every subject was taught or displayed. The Fine Arts program was represented with the singing of the National Anthem, Mr. Newvine taught us some English by sharing some new vocabulary words as the announcer, and the kids taught me some Math by converting my shooting skills from a fraction to a percent (closer to 0% than I would like to admit). The game itself was the Physical Education, History repeated itself with a staff victory, and we even hit on some Business because when Mr. Hallinan shot three's, the bank was open. Again thanks to all staff, students, and the community for making it a very enjoyable night.
This week will be pretty busy as well. There is the National Honor Society induction, a C.O.D.E. graduation, and I get to see the MythBusters Tour. Have a great week!
