Kids let off steam after weeks of testing, 04/14/2022

After state assessment testing and a block schedule, SHMS Mavericks are spending their extended Advisory periods on Thursday and Friday unwinding with a variety of fun activities.

For both weeks of testing, classroom teachers have organized projects, games, and entertainment to match what students might need, whether that is the opportunity to move, laugh, or sit quietly. Offerings include movies, coloring pages, mazes, puzzles, word searches, service projects, board and card games, competitions in the gym, or catching up on missing assignments. Weather permitting, Friday’s activities all will be outdoors so students can enjoy the sunshine while playing team games or completing scavenger hunts. 

Students who weren’t able to finish their assessments will utilize the 90 minute sessions to try to wrap up their testing.
