A sixth grader is one happy camper after the pie eating contest this past Thursday!

The battle was on this past Thursday and Friday during activity period. Four teams–Blue, Green, Yellow, and Red–faced off for one of the most prestigious prizes of the summer: the U.S. Grant Color War Championship. Students (who were randomly divided into their teams) competed in a smorgasbord of crazy, fun events. Entourage, Duck Duck Goose, Fire Brigade, Tug of War, Pie Eating, Dance-Off, Capture the Flag … the list goes on. The hallways and Old Campus reverberated with shouts as the students competed in their events and cheered for their teammates.

At the end of the two days, Blue Team walked away with a decisive victory. The prize? Having free range to throw water balloons at Mr. Levine for five minutes. His sweater was quite soaked by the end.

We had so much fun and can’t believe that next week is the last week of the program!
