This We Believe
We believe in Quest and the power of OUR three rings; community, creativity and laughter.
Imagine, a group of disconnected, somewhat awkward 6th graders sitting around a table waiting for instructions from a random teacher. Some are ambitious, yet others want to fade into the background. Flash forward one year to 7th grade. We know people and that random teacher from earlier. The class is a bit louder, more comfortable, and there is a cohesiveness that has grown from the seeds of 6th grade. Friendships have formed. Now, it is 8th grade. We are louder, more comfortable with each other’s unique qualities, and appreciative of the group. That random teacher from 6th grade now has a name and understands us as individuals, and as a group. We are a community.
What happens when you combine index cards, pencils, and a group of Quest students? Telestrations, Quest-style! Although the artistic skill is low, the passion of the arts still rings true! Well, Nina’s turkey may have looked like a baseball mitt, and Beau’s lemon may have looked like a floating head, but isn’t that what Quest is all about? And we can’t forget about our majestic sweet potato represented by the sound of a harp. We are creative.
What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef. Why don’t you take a test in the jungle? Because there are so may cheetahs. It started with a pun, and turned into a pun-pocalypse. What do snowmen call their children? Want to hear a cat joke? We laugh often.
You know what they say. If you like it, put a ring on it. Well, we like Quest so much that we put three on it. OUR three rings of giftedness.
