Valley Sixth Graders CONNECT with BHS Tenth Graders

 
Over the course of the school year the stu­dents have chat­ted back and forth on Google Classroom, respond­ing to top­ics that have to do with social life, per­son­al life, hob­bies, likes, dis­likes, etc. The stu­dents were part­nered up and have devel­oped a rela­tion­ship, but had nev­er met.
 
On Monday, June 3rd, the 10th graders arrived at Valley on bus­es to meet their CONNECT part­ners for the first time!
 
Each high school­er wel­comed their bud­dy with open arms, and enjoyed two hours of out­door fun in the beau­ti­ful weath­er. While a large group of boys par­tic­i­pat­ed in foot­ball and bas­ket­ball match­es, the girls came pre­pared with pic­nic blan­kets and music to make the sixth-graders feel more com­fort­able. Some played board games or cards.
 
The after­noon con­clud­ed with a piz­za par­ty. Mr. Taylor and Mrs. Phillips plan to con­tin­ue the CONNECT Program for the 2019–20 school year!
