Students Earn a Study Break, Wintervention

Cole Anderson - Staff Reporter

On March 16, the middle school students, sixth through eighth grades, held a party called “Wintervention”. The students were excused from class at 2:00 and were taken to the gym to participate in the events. 

   Students were given the choice to take part in any of the activities including dodgeball, basketball, or Just Dance, and plenty of snacks were also provided. The event was to give the students a break from their studies and allow them to have recreational fun during their school day.

   The middle school students had spent the week taking standardized tests which will be scored and ranked in the state. The students earned a well deserved break from all of their hard work. Standardized tests can be a very stressful time for any individual.

   “Wintervention” was a success, and was enjoyed by all who attended.
