Exciting moments of the week
During our weekly SOAR assembly two teachers were chosen to participate in a "minute-to-win-it" activity based on highest attendance.  Our class was one of the classes with the high attendance, so I was able to participate in the activity.  The other teacher and I had to wear a pair of pantyhose on our heads, one of the legs of the hose had several beanbags in it.  The objective was to swing the leg of the hose around and knock down a series of water bottles.  Sadly, I was unable to knock the last bottle down before my opponent surpassed me.  Hopefully, I will have a better showing in the future if I'm given the chance to participate in one of these activities again.
