Approximately 25 students in grades six, seven and eight had an opportunity to have fun and beat the heat with some spirited, friendly water games after school on Wednesday, March 10 from 3:00-4:30 p.m.

The Middle School Student Council served root beer floats, popcorn, and candy and students played Water Tag and Water Capture the Flag.

“Some things in Water Wars didn’t go as planned,” said Dylan, grade six Middle School Student Council member. “For example, the games we planned weren’t all accomplished. The game ‘Call of Capture’ was a combination of capture the flag and Call of Duty. We predicted the game would be a success, but in reality, we never got to play the game at all. However, the food sales — candy, root beer floats, soda, popsicles — were an amazing success!”

Organizing this fun event specifically for middle school students came from a similar kind of event organized for students last year.

“Last year I saw Mr. Timm and Mrs. Timm put on a water event, and I heard students enjoyed it. When I discussed it with the Middle School Student Council, they were very enthusiastic to try their own middle-school-only water event,” Ms. Gierke, MS Student Council Adviser, said.

Mr. Timm, Mrs. Timm, Mr. Dobbs, and Mr. Bondurant chaperoned the event in addition to Ms. Gierke.

“Most people liked that there was food and had fun with the water guns. MS StudCo liked how everything went really good but they want to do it better next time,” said Charlize, grade six MS Student Council member.
