The 3rd Annual Fall House Games Competition wrapped up just in time for the Thanksgiving Break. Moving the games during the last half of the school day, rather than after school, kept the attendance and spirit high! As in previous years, the competition was fierce but filled with laughter and sportsmanship. For each game, the house leaders had to strategically determine which members should participate based on the skills needed or the willingness of the members to do some of the crazier activities. Each game had the 1st place winners received 1 point, 2nd place winners received 2pts, and 3rd place winners received 3pts. The “Ultimate Winner of the House Games” was the House with the lowest number of points.
Throughout the afternoon the points were close between the three Houses but at the end of the day, Sapientia was announced the winner!
Congratulations Sapientia! Well Done!
Sapientia – 25points
Audacia 29 points
Fides 33 points
Below are some of the pictures from the fun afternoon!
Granny Style Hoops – sadly we have no pictures of this game because it required all the house members to participate. 1st Audacia, 2nd Sapientia, 3rd Fides
Clean Your Plate Challenge – (a thanksgiving meal of baby food!) – All teams received a 1st place score in this game because it was “under protest” due to the House Advisors having different interpretations/definitions of a “clean plate!”
Cookie Face – This game had 4 heats.
Heat 1 – 1st Audacia, 2nd Sapientia, 3rd Fides
Heat 2 – 1st Audacia, 2nd Sapientia, 3rd Fides
Heat 3 – 1st Sapientia, 2nd Fides, 3rd Audacia
Heat 4 – 1st Audacia, 2nd Fides, 3rd Sapientia
Flip, Whistle, Chew, Sort and Slurp Relay – Certainly the most complicated of the games requiring one student to flip and land a water bottle, another student to whistle after eating A LOT of crackers, another to chew gum and produce a bubble, another to sort M&M’s into color piles, and lastly students had to slurp up Jello and spit it into a cup to a specified level.
