‘Hour of Play’ Takes Over Bay Farm

By Kara Levy

On December 7, Bay Farm School had their first Hour of Play for the school year. Teachers hosted activities in their classrooms, such as “Bring Your Own Slime” in Mrs. Reynolds’s room, speed cup stacking in Mrs. Oducayen’s room, card games in Mr. Valois’s room, and more.

Bella Buyanurt, a 6th grader, said about Bring Your Own Slime, “They ruined Teresa’s desk and backpack!”

On the other hand, Nikhita Bulusu, a 7th grader, said, “It would have been nice if more people had done the mini-events.”

6th grade teacher Mrs. Reynolds said, “Student Council had a blast setting this up. I think this is an excellent example of students being rewarded for good behavior, and more Hours of Play will happen this year, definitely.”

Students also entertained themselves with outdoor activities, like foursquare, basketball, and Capture the Flag. Daniel Kinna, another 6th grader, said, “I kept on losing in foursquare!”

In front of the Media Center, there was a huge dance party and even Mrs. Crawford joined in! Preston Graham, a 6th grader, described the dance party as a “dance fest.”

The first Hour of Play for the 2018-19 school year turned out to be amazing and memorable because so many wonderful and talented people put it together.
