It was a thrilling week, and I am certain that everyone enjoyed getting outside after a day at school. It was an awesome experience feeling our sneakers soak with the cool stream and seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces as they dared to cross the Spider’s Web.
Beginning with our Foxes, we painted our water bottles to prepare them for the river. Next, we headed into the woods for our Spider’s Web. Brody was the all-star by hanging upside down and crossing the web without touching the ground. Faith was one of the fastest climbers I’ve ever seen!
Lastly, we moved onto the Bottle Race. We walked through the creek and guided our water bottles through the current. Shoutout to Lincoln for outstanding bottle-racing skills!
For the Ravens, they began by attempting the dreadful Spider’s Web. Their captain, Maria, was a great guide with her excellent climbing skills. Soon, we ran for the stream to compete in the Bottle Race.
Sophia and Jake found sturdy sticks on our way to lead their bottle down the creek. To our surprise, Lexi and Serena were terrific bottle racers! Once we made it to the finish line, it was time to race back up the stream however, this way was harder because we had to go against the current. Kennedy gave the best advice to her teammates as they struggled up the river.
The Falcons were yet again the most sabotaged group with the Ravens tying up their Spider’s Web into the best knots I’ve ever seen. It didn’t stop them though, they all scaled the web with ease with Caleb being one of our best competitors.
Onto the stream we went with our water bottles and sticks in hand. Zach was a fantastic asset to the team, giving everyone tips and tricks on how to bottle race like a pro. It didn’t take long for Avery, Isa, and Cecelia to be soaked from head to toe, literally!
We tied what was the Spider’s Web into a net and carried Avery and Brielle to the finish line! Excellent teamwork and problem solving is what I saw as I watched the Falcons go through this unique challenge. Marcus sure did have the heaviest load, but he persevered!
In the end, it was a week full of surprises and tough challenges where we learned how to work together as a team and how to help others that needed it. I know as we progress through our games, we will have more fun every time we see you! Thank you to everyone’s kindness and participation.
We can’t wait to see you all this week,
Sarah, Georgia, Sophie, and Mr. Paton
