6th Grade Winter Olympics

Winter Olympics

One of the P2 strengths is Teamwork. Last Friday the 6th grade team participated in the CMS version of the Winter Olympics. This is a cross curricular unit where students have been assigned a country. In several of their classes, they have been researching their country and the culture.  The teams rotated through a variety of activities held outside including: hockey, curling, corn hole, sled pulls, snow obstacle course, snow fort construction, a biathlon, a Native American snow snake game, and Olympic trivia. The day ended with a food tasting event where students had the opportunity to sample food from around the world. First place winners were from Sweden, second place was Germany and third place was Brazil. 

7th Graders Cheer on Athletes

On February 6, twenty students from CMS were able to volunteer at the State Winter Games held in Traverse City.  Their role as a volunteer was a very vital part of Special Olympics existence.  Because of the hundreds of committed volunteers, Special Olympics Michigan is able to provide one of the best sports programs in the country!

Being a volunteer for Special Olympics Michigan was an honor and a privilege and listening to our students reflect on the days activities was heartwarming.

Lady Elks lost to Saint Elizabeth in 3 by the slimmest of margins.  16-14 in the third set. It’s was a well fought match and everyone contributed to a very competitive match. While the Lady Elks beat Saint Elizabeth 2 out of 3 matches this year, this loss will keep them fired up for next year’s head to head contests. Great Season by all!!
