The Detroit Red Wings put on an assembly today at Murphy stressing the importance of staying healthy, fit, and setting goals. No players were able to attend since they are busy in the playoffs, but it was a lot of fun for everyone and students were able to narrowly beat the teachers in the skills competition by a one goal margin.
In recent recess news, the kickball field got new bases. We’re hoping having actual bases reduces the disagreement on what is fair, foul, or whether anyone is standing on any base at all.
In other news, the soccer players in the K-3 lunch created an impenetrable wall to stop shots. Several goals later, the wall was removed for lack of effectiveness.
We had our Lightning Leader Lunch today for those students who were picked by their teacher. These students display excellent BOLTS behavior we provide them with pizza, juice, and ice cream sandwiches as a thank you!
