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!

February 19-23 Cullen Events

We have a relatively quiet week planned at Cullen leading up to next week’s ISTEP exams. On Monday we’ll have a morning bleacher talk about our monthly school drills and lining up for the afterschool bus.

There will be a fire drill later this week. I’m thankful for our four fire wardens, and the leadership they’ve shown in helping ensure everyone is safe and sound during the fire drills. Keep in mind that we’ll be looking for new fire wardens after this school year since our current fire wardens will be eighth graders in three months. Tally-ho!
