SARAH COBB CELEBRATES CRCT EVENT WITH STUDENT FUN AND RELAXATION After exceeding the $2000 goal for the American Cancer Society and the local Relay for Life, administrators and teachers turned their efforts to address the potential stress of students for the next-week administration of the Criterion Reference Competency Test (CRCT). "We raised over $2200 for Relay for Life and now our efforts are to celebrate the weather and the physical mental releases for our students. The CRCT administration can be a stressful time for both teachers and students but with our "Shoot For Fun" activities and a restful weekend, we will be ready," assured Principal Barbara Watford.
For the "Shoot For Fun" day of celebration, students enjoyed creative finger-nail polishing for girls and a diverse offering of creative and energy-exertion events. With sidewalk painting, jump rope, basketball 3-point shooting and relay, led by Coach Steve Smith, students enjoyed the element of competition and creative expression. "This FRIDAY was a day of casual, yet competitive fellowship for our students. The day was designed to be fun and a time when 'kids could be kids,'. Together, we plan to attain the highest results from the CRCT," said Mrs. Angela Pena', chairman of the Shoot For Fun celebration.
