February Sibling Day

Sibling Day was a lot of fun with our families! From academic activities in the classroom, PE assemblies that tested our endurance, music making, and even some social games, the morning was action-packed. Even though our sibs were on February break, the fun goes year-round at Higashi, as we were still in session. We had an amazing turnout, and we always love having our siblings visit!

The most enjoyed activity was probably the game "Cake Splat" that was played during Elementary D-Class' Communication time. Check out our Facebook page for some great game photos! Who got a whipped cream SPLAT, and who escaped a messy end? Take a look!

Elementary Launches Rockets!

On Friday our Elementary Division held a science fair style contest to see how far their rockets, built during Art classes, would fly! Classes competed one at a time, and two-by-two, students took turns launching their rockets, using math to determine how far each had flown, and charting the distance on a poster on the wall for all to see. The atmosphere in Marble Hall rivaled that of any Super Bowl event, as both students and staff cheered loudly for their friends, used noisemakers, and high-fived the competitors for a job well done. Congrats to Ben J, whose rocket flew the furthest, clocking in at 16 feet. He received a medal for his win, and he was truly excited that his rocket traveled so far!

Congrats, Elementary staff and students!
