The PTO has an auction every two years. This year the auction’s theme is Mardi Gras. Since students may not attend, to learn more, we talked with Mrs. Gemelli, chairperson for the event and two parents who attended, on March 24, 2018. We hope you enjoy learning about this year’s Mardi Gras auction.
Every 4 years, Chickering School has their own version of the Winter Olympics, when the real Olympics are taking place. Ms Riordan and Mr. Fraser, our physical education [P.E.] teachers, used our P.E. or gym equipment, to replicate the actual Olympic events. The events include: Biathlon, Cross Country Skiing, Curling, Luge, Skeleton, and Speed Skating. To recognize these activities they appear as follows:
. Biathlon – children “skate” on styrofoam, then shoot a basketball or yarn ball into a basket
. Cross Country Skiing – 2 children “skiing” together
. Curling – children use a hockey stick to push donut-shaped rings into a circle
. Luge – sitting on scooters and being pushed by another student
. Skeleton – lying on the scooter
. Speed Skating – children “skate” on styrofoam
Ms Riordan and Mr. Fraser asked us to review and edit about 500 photos from our Olympic events … this took a very long time! We hope you enjoy our photo review of the Winter Olympic.
