Little Dribblers

The irony of that description not withstanding, I felt like I needed to share with you all the coolness that was the "Little Dribblers" games put on last week. As I've mentioned before, basketball is huge here, and even the littlest of kids wants to play. So, it was decided that on Thursday and Friday, before afternoon parent/teacher conferences, we (and by "we" I mean one person, who really had plenty of other things to do already) would organize some games for the K-5th graders.

Thursday was the really little kids' turn, and let me tell you...more than one person made the comment that watching the Kindergarten kids play basketball was the most fun they've had in a while, definitely a highlight of the year. There wasn't much dribbling and even fewer made shots, but man was it fun to watch :-)

Kudos to those who came up with the idea and made it happen...it was just the thing to inject some good vibes into the building at a time when they were sorely needed. For this week....is testing week!
