Teach 180: Games Day (Day 13)

Today there is just one class.  It is D period and I don't teach D period.  So, today I have no classes.  What am I doing today?  Today is Red and Gold Games Day.  It is a tradition that started in 2000 as the Millennial Games.  The entire student body (grades 1 - 12) are split into two teams - red and gold.  We play field day type games, like sack races, tug-of-war and 100 yard dash.  First grade students are paired with twelfth grade students and the twelfth grade students cheer on their first grader buddies as they race and help them with getting lunch.

What happens after lunch?  This year I have mandatory child abuse recognition training from 1 PM to 4 PM.  (There is required training for teachers once every 5 years.) Students will be participating in various activities including sports practices, scholastic scrimmage, working in the community garden, coda red music rehearsal, working in the art studio and my favorite - Who Wants to be a Mathematician qualifying contest!
