Last week was sportsmanship week at Park View. The Sportsmanship Advisory Council worked hard these last few weeks to make sure the week went smoothly. On Wednesday morning the council held a sportsmanship breakfast for senior winter athletes, captain of winter sports, and anyone who had won the monthly Sportsmanship award this year. Ribbons were given to anyone going to a sporting event this week to be worn on shirts or jackets to show support and promote good sportsmanship. In school, the idea of sportsmanship was spread as well, with all winter athletes receiving a ribbon on Thursday. The ribbon was to be worn to lunch in order to get a raffle ticket and a chance to win a Champ Bailey autographed football and T-shirt.
The annual Bermuda Day was canceled on Friday because of the two-hour delay caused by snow and ice covering the roads. Bermuda Day is a tradition at Park View, as the favorite way to relax and unwind at school before exams start. At the event students play a series of games, such as the mummy roll where they wrap someone up in toilet paper, to see what class wins the most. They are then awarded the winner and the bragging rights for the rest of the year. It's a day to dress up like it's summer and forget about the frigid weather outside.
Saturday, Jan. 10 was Exam Review day from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Students came in to make up work, study for exams, or get extra credit in a class. The school provides the students with snacks during a short break to keep them on their toes. It's a very beneficial way to get some extra help before the exams start.
