MS TEAM CHALLENGE                       

2021 North Shore Middle School Team Challenge

Principal Rob Dennis kicked off the annual North Shore Middle School Team Challenge with enthusiastic students, faculty and staff in late March 2021 this school year. The annual Team Challenge consists of a wide variety of fun-filled events combining academic, athletic and artistic skills. The 2021 teams included The Rat Pack, Five Guys, Turbulence, 6 Feet Apart, Studio 1 Idols, Seven Deadly Sins, Last 1 Standing, Tropical Turquoise Tsunamis, and Feel the Thunder– to name a few!

The Team Challenge is traditionally a favorite event at the middle school. It enables students to demonstrate their creative, social, and athletic abilities learned during the first part of the school year. It builds on their already strong teamwork skills and eases the tension that often goes along with an extremely rigorous middle school academic program. Sportsmanship and acts of kindness are always rewarded!

During the two-day MS Team Challenge event, students participated in some of the best cheers, songs, and lip syncing routines! They played various athletic events and even had the opportunity to paint rocks with meaningful sayings and team colors near the outdoor classroom.

With COVID-19 guidelines adhered to both inside and outside, everyone practiced sportsmanship, collaboration, and teamwork while engaging in a variety of fun events and activities that the students will be talking about for a long time!
