On February 11th, Principal Dr. Marc Ferris kicked off the annual North Shore Middle School Team Challenge to a gymnasium filled with enthusiastic students, faculty and staff. The annual Team Challenge consists of a wide variety of fun-filled events combining academic, athletic and artistic skills. Dr. Ferris introduced the 2016 teams including Crocodile Hunters, Amojis, Beast Mode, 2 Legit 2 Quit, All Stars, Savage3s, and Red Rhinos to a thunderous round of applause! In addition, Assistant Principal Green dressed as a Viking matriarch helped re-enact the story of the NS Middle Challenge with her co-workers!
A favorite event at the middle school, the Team Challenge enables students to demonstrate their abilities learned during the first part of the school year. It builds on their already strong teamwork skills and eases the tension that often goes along with an extremely rigorous middle school academic program. Sportsmanship and acts of kindness are always rewarded!
Dr. Ferris concluded by saying, “Win, lose or draw, all of our students win when they work together, learn from one another, and make a difference in the lives of others.”
