Students Learn Through Competitive Games

Learning through activities and games, a local catholic school ends the year in a big way; a first of its kind event at Resurrection Catholic School.

"Each of the houses are named after a saint and ours is Saint Hildegard,” said eighth grader Jourdan Weinzapfel.

Fifth through eighth graders divided into four different houses to compete for one trophy.

"So, art built dragons, math made castles to scale, science made catapults, and language arts made skits,” said Language Arts Teacher Courtney Ethridge.

Ethridge is proud of her students for working together with all grade levels to complete challenges.

"It was a great way for students to tap into the skills they like and to showcase them for everyone else to see,” said Ethridge.

But working together is something eighth grader Jourdan Weinzapfel liked the most.

"My favorite, really, was getting closer with the younger kids because I pass them in the hall all the time, but I never really get a chance to get to know them and I think it really helped me become a leader, watching them become leaders themselves,” said Weinzapfel.

Becoming leaders through competing with marshmallow throwing catapults, skits, and art was a fun way to end the year for Rachel Luigs.

"I think it was fun, it was like a big deal, last hoorah,” said Rachel Luigs.

"I just love how connected we have come, not just the students but also the teachers, it's connected us as a unit,” said Etheridge.

Incorporating learning with fun, a challenge no student can pass up.
