Go for the Gold at PAS!

Love the Olympics?

Check out the creative talents of our community’s kids and learn a thing or two along the way.

Yesterday, I was introduced to two new websites designed to help viewers keep tabs on the Olympics. The best part of all? These cool sites were created by the very cool 6th grade students in Mr. Tinklenberg’s Language Arts classes.

My favorite part is the medal tracker on the bottom of each page.

Block One Language Arts 2018 Winter Olympics website

Block Two Language Arts 2018 Winter Olympics website

Please enjoy the hard work and creative efforts of our talented youth as they venture into the world of writing, reporting, and design.

Cured: Cabin Fever Reliever

A few groups have yet to lock themselves into the Meinders Library escape room, but many staunch Midwestern souls have already braved the winter blues and busted free from their Cabin Fever.

The countdown begins…

Just Over An Hour…


Third Place: R12 cured their blues in 58 minutes!

Tied for 1st at 54 Minutes…

The Paige Turners (Gavin and Jessica Winter, Paige Ahrendt, Keri Prins, Jill Boucher, Liz Winsel, and Janet Bush) and The Boys Club (unavailable for photo shoot, but if you’ve seen one Wacker boy, you’ve seen them all, plus Avery Wagner)!

Additional campers included students who worked twice as hard to finish cracking the codes within their limited class times:

  • 1/2 MassCom class: unlocked 7 of 10 locks and started communicating like rock stars toward the end.
  • 3 and 4 year French Students: unlocked 8 of 10, half of which were written in French! Ooh la la!
  • ELL Students, Teacher and Interpreter: 10 of 10 with added time, clues in several languages, and lots of fun.
  • Several classes yet to go through…

Thanks for all who played. We enjoy your time in the escape room as much as you do!

Until next time…
