|Ezra, the supersonic climber!|
Thank you to all the parents who made this possible!
|Matilda showed super determination!|
Our Master Chef day was so much fun! The Minions ended up overall champions, after winning the Brunch and the Spaghetti Tower Challenge. The lunch challenge was a six way tie, because we ran out of time to judge that. I was so proud of how all the tribes worked together, showing teamwork and putting Parkvale PRIDE into action. A huge thank you to the parents who helped on the day. Without them, none of this awesomely engaging learning opportunity would've happened.
Note: scroll over the photos in the big minion to enlarge them. If you want any of these photos, send me a message and I can share them with you through Google Drive or email.
