Last Week's Meeting

During last week's meeting, the kids previewed the challenge choices. They chose to learn more about "The Meme Event" and "Get a Clue." The girls decided to wait until the next week, when all members are present, before making a final selection.


The team spent some time taking a quiz to determine their strengths. So far, it looks like the teams talents lie in music and words/language. It will be interesting to see if Madi and Cayden's results continue this trend, or if they have strengths in other areas.


Finally, the team worked on developing some expectations (pictured below). They decided that in order to be successful as a team, they needed to...

1) Have fun

2) Be ready for any challenge

3) Have everyone agree

4) Be respectful (we talked about what this would look like)

5) Be kind

6) Be cooperative

7) Be focused

8) Work hard, think hard

9) There's no such thing as a bad idea
