In late September, class 5C took the mile run. It went something like this. First, every member of the class chose a partner and got a sheet of paper. Then, everyone went outside to the basketball court/field. A lot of people are really nervous about this extreme run. Since the class was in partnerships, these partners had to choose who was going first and who was going second. Was that was decided, the first set went to the start line. The gym teacher Mr. Borja started the timer. “123 GO” he screamed. And just like that, they were off. Every time someone hit the start Mr. Borja called out that time and the partner not running and they write it down. These amazing runners had to run 10 laps around the basketball court and black top. When the tenth lap was up, it was time to switch. As you can see, all the members of the mile run are exhausted. Hopefully, something like this will never occur again.
Rain. On Halloween it rained. Everyone thought Halloween was ruined but some people knew that rain would not stop them from having the best Halloween ever. Since it was raining, Heathcote schools principal Ms. Stile held the Halloween parade inside. The whole school gathered in the auditorium and she started. It went something like this: first the whole school sang the Pledge of Allegiance and then sang the national anthem after that, the music teacher Ms. Bescherer lead the school in the school song and a few other songs that Heathcote school sings at assemblies. After that, all the teachers came up to the stage. This year at Heathcote, the theme for the teachers costume was the Wizard of Oz. So once they were all up on the stage, they sang Over the Rainbow and the whole school sang along. Then came the moment all of Heathcote school was waiting for, the parade. The kindergarten went first, the first grade went second and so on. According to Hana a member of class 5C “the parade was better inside. It was a lot more fun.” All the grades had really unique costumes and not on purpose, Mrs. Cooper and had the same costume. Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz.
