Silly Scavenger Hunt Winners

MaggieWe had a three way classroom tie for our SILLY SCAVENGER HUNT WINNERS! These classes had the most scavenger hunt participants and have won an hour of choice activity time:  Mrs. Boersma, Mrs. Bouwens and Mrs. Burdis.   It is important to note that Mrs. Burdis’ class had the highest average of participants in all three scavenger hunts!

The individual winner for the hunt was Maggie in Mrs. Kuieck’s second grade classroom.  Maggie won a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card along with some yummy holiday candy.

Over 80 students participated in the hunt.  This earns them an extra ticket in the Reading Counts drawing that will take place later this week.

We have had three scavenger hunts so far this year–all designed to help you get to know the teaching staff.  We kicked off the year with a hunt about vacations, followed by one about hobbies, and ended with “silly things teachers do.”  In all, we had 331 people participate in our hunts!  I think this is incredible.

It is my hope to kick off a student scavenger hunt this winter!  More news to come in 2010.   Mrs. Reagan

Scavenger Hunt Pressure

It’s time for me to stir up a little scavenger hunt competition!  I have extended the deadline to Monday, October 26.  The original deadline was Friday, Oct 23–but students do not have school on that day.

So far, we have had over 40 students and three teachers enter the competition.  The class that has the MOST students (along with their teacher) enter wins ONE HOUR WITH THE PRINCIPAL. The current breakdown is as follows:Scav Hunt

  • Mrs. Estefan: 1
  • Mrs. Veldman: 1
  • Mrs. Stadt:  1
  • Mrs. Quigley: 1
  • Mrs.  Kuieck: 1
  • Ms. Burmeister: 1
  • Mrs. Flory:  1
  • Mrs. Weiss: 1
  • Mrs. Bohl: 2
  • Mrs. Woodring: 2
  • Mrs. Huizenga: 2
  • Ms. VanArkel:  2
  • Mrs. Greenlund 3
  • Mr. Gort 4
  • Mrs. Bouwens: 5
  • Mr. Bowen:  5
  • Mrs. Burdis: 6
  • McDonald: 7 (This class is in the lead…and they won in September, too!)

Every student who participates gets a ticket in the reading counts drawing.   All of the students who participate are entered into a drawing in which one winner receives a Barnes and Noble gift card and lunch OUT with the princpal.

So…while you are on your three day weekend from school…staying healthy…read up on teacher’s hobbies and enter the scavenger hunt!
