Promoting Healthy Competition and Teamwork

Shore Road sixth-graders dressed in college team colors and attire to challenge one another during the school’s annual Sixth-Grade College Olympics.

The students first demonstrated the democratic process by determining their college teams, which included the Penn State Nittany Lions, UCLA Bruins, Michigan Wolverines, Maryland Terrapins, Oregon Ducks, North Carolina Tar Heels and Syracuse Orangemen.

Under the direction of physical education teachers Brian Scott and Mallory Cogen, the students battled it out on the court with a game of basketball as their peers cheered from the sidelines.

“The Sixth-Grade College Olympics promotes camaraderie among the students, as well as sportsmanship and healthy competition,” said Mr. Scott.
