Teamwork Counts

Today our second grade students spent the morning involved in Teamwork Counts.   All of the second graders were randomly divided into teams of six, and worked at a variety of problem-solving stations.  The objective of this event was to encourage team spirit and cooperative team effort.  Children were able to show off their special skills and talents through this educationally challenging and enjoyable experience.
