Chess & Ping Pong at Cullen

We recently received a couple of chess boards from Ms. Foltz. If you’re interested in playing chess during recess, please see Mrs. Redman. A little reminder that ping pong paddles and balls can also be checked out.

The 1st Annual Cullen Winter Games

Next week is the last week of the quarter and the first annual Cullen Winter Games (we’ll still have academic support). We want to finish the quarter on a strong note so let’s work hard and play hard!

Shout-outs go to Mr. Kline and the Student Council for coming up with sweet Spirit Week themes and events. Points will be awarded to the homerooms with the highest percentage of students who dress up. Dozens of medals have been designed for those who reach the winners’ podium (check out the pic). Who will find gold around their neck?

Yours truly will be serving as emcee at this historic competition. Below are the events and the themes for each day. Be sure to sign up for the events with your homeroom teacher. Let the games begin!
