Seminar games add fun to Snowcoming week

Seminar games were a fun way to bring the classes together, while also allowing them to earn many spirit points.

During Snowcoming week, there are multiple activities to bring school spirit. One of the many activities was seminar games, which were held on Tuesday and Wednesday. These games were a good way to earn spirit points while the classes worked together to try to win. 

On Tuesday, the seniors and freshmen were in the gym. The games they played were: Hula Hoop Pass-Through, Three-Point Contest, and Run for the Sun. During the Hula Hoop Pass-Through, fifteen students from each grade started by all holding hands. The goal was to pass the hula hoop around the circle as quickly as possible without breaking hands. During the Three-Point Contest, three students per grade took turns making three-pointers from all around the three-point line; the class with the most shots made won. The last game that was played was Run for the Sun. During this game, ten students from each grade had a goal to steal the other team’s ball without getting tagged. 

On that same day, the sophomores and juniors competed against each other in Minute-to-Win-it games. There were a total of seven games played, which included: Face the Cookie, Junk in the Trunk, Defy Gravity, Rubber Band Target, Pantyhose Bowling, Blindfolded Cotton Ball Scoop, and Stack Attack. Each game gave the students one minute to complete the task and was held in a variety of different rooms. 

On Wednesday, the same games took place, but the classes switched. The seniors and freshmen went to the Minute-to-Win-it games; the juniors and sophomores went to the gym to play those games that took place there.

When the games were over, each grade had earned many spirit points. The freshmen earned 32 points; sophomores earned 48; juniors earned 36; seniors earned the most, with a total of 60 spirit points.

Freshman Dakota Hamilton played in a few games. She shares that her favorite game was Pantyhose Bowling or Blind Cotton Ball Scooping because they were fun to compete in and were challenging. Hamilton also explains what she enjoyed the most about the games. She says, “I enjoyed competing in them with my friends and the different options.” She also adds that she liked the Minute-to-Win-it games more than the ones in the gym. Hamilton explains, “There were more options and you could constantly be doing something rather than just watching.” Overall, she thinks that the games were a lot of fun.

Tamara DeRossett is another freshman who enjoyed playing the games. She explains that her favorite game was the One-handed Balloon Challenge with Mrs. Mattson because “it was challenging and it was hard to keep the balloons up.” Along with the balloon game, she also enjoyed the rubber band throw game; overall she just enjoyed the Minute-to-Win-it games. She hopes that next time there could be a game where students get to use their artistic abilities.

Sophomore, Paul Herendeen also participated in many games. He explains, “My favorite game was Run for the Sun because it got the grades to work together and communicate well.” Herendeen also shares that he enjoyed the games because of the grade-against-grade aspect. He hopes that next time, there will be more team games like Run for the Sun. Most of all, Herendeen enjoyed the games where more people got involved altogether.

The games were a huge success and something that added to the fun of the week. Thank you to the student council for planning all of these games!
