For the month of November in Connections, we are focusing on team building and gratitude. There was a school-wide pumpkin decorating competition! Connection classes worked together to brainstorm ideas on how to decorate their pumpkin then execute their plan. Every student and staff member had the opportunity to vote for their favorite pumpkin in each grade level.
Winners in each grade level:
9th grade: Double-sided Monsters Inc. pumpkin
10th grade: Krabby Patty pumpkin / Spongbob scene
11th grade: Shawnee Indian pumpkin vs Hamilton Baden pumpkin
12th grade: Kermit the Frog pumpkin
Click here to check out the decorated pumpkins. How impressive!?
Upcoming lessons in Connections will focus on Empathy and Career Exploration.
