Spring Break Pre-Party

Today was the last day of school for the third quarter.  It was also the Friday before a 10-day spring break.  Putting those two together pretty much equals chaos in sixth grade.  Nobody wants to do much.  Behavior can be challenging as both students and teachers count down the hours and minutes until a much needed break.

Lucky for me we started the party just a tad early.  At 9:00 am 81 sixth graders, and their teachers, marched out of school and headed to the bowling alley on a nearby military base.  We spent a little over three hours knocking down pins in hopes of securing a spare or strike.  The snack bar was open and the French fries were flying out of the fryer at the same rate of the soda spilling out of the fountain.  

Soda for miles.  French fries galore.  All you can eat pizza.  Oh, and bowling- does it get any better than that?  

In 6th grade-not really, unless you consider the entertainment value of watching your seemingly old, uncool teachers bowl.
