PHOENIX – Emerson J. Dillon students recently celebrated a culmination of character education with a Spirit Day Assembly at Phoenix Central School District.
Students dressed in selected colors depending on their grade level and participated in a variety of team-building games and challenges throughout the day, including a real-life version of foosball; pool noodles were connected together with duct tape and the kids had to maneuver the ball without letting go.
The winning student team competed against teachers.
Teachers also participated in the fun during a real-life “Hungry, Hungry Hippos” competition, where one teacher would slide across the gym floor on wheels using a bucket to grab as many tennis and ping pong balls as possible, while another teacher held the rope to reel them back in.
The Spirit Assembly not only promoted school spirit and character education, but also instilled a sense of teamwork among the students.
