You may have thought that the 2010 Superbowl Game was a great game, but the annual Staff vs 5th Grade Students Pillow Polo Match was RIVETING! What in the world is pillow polo: It is a sport similar to field hockey, but played indoors and with giant Q-tips for sticks. It is one intense, high energy game!
The 5th grade students put forward a good challenge, defensively and offensively. They were, however, out scored by the highly skilled staff. There was a penalty in the first half when Mrs. Kok (Mrs. Becky) was caught high sticking…so, sorry Grace!
Mrs. Burdis held the goalie position and saved her team by preventing multiple scores by the opposing teams. The staff scored four goals, with the students scoring one goal the entire game. Go Mrs. Bouwens, Mrs. Brouwer, Mrs. VanKoevering, Mrs. Burdis, Mrs. Kok, Mrs. Reagan–thanks for great team work.
Many thanks to all the students, the staff (who will be sore for days) and Mrs. VanKoevering/Mrs. Nienhuis for setting up this event!
*Final Note: This was the 3rd consecutive year the staff has beat the socks off the 5th graders. So, if you are a fourth grader this year, watch out!
