Splat! It’s spring break
Glenwood Springs Middle School started spring break in grand fashion Friday with an all-school assembly of fun and games.
In the main event, 10 teachers and the school resource officer were spectacularly splattered with pie in their faces as a reward for raising $1,432.25 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through their Pennies for Patients program.
“I have done this fundraiser at different schools over the years in schools on the Front Range and have never had a group of students come together like this,” said GSMS Cougar Council sponsor Autumn Rivera. “I am shocked at how much they donated.“
Other activities include a scavenger hunt to figure out which grade could come up with a random object — no one had a 50-cent piece, and photos were hard to come by with cell phones excluded, but a surprisingly large number of students were carrying duct tape. A game of human Hungry Hungry Hippos, in which bound students wriggled to fetch dodgeballs with their legs tied, was followed by a messy attempt to construct a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and feed it to another student.
“It was fun,” said Dean of Students Roman Hassell. “What a great way to leave for the holiday. The kids are ready for the break and so are the teachers.”
