Every June, Herman Intermediate and AdVenture STEM celebrates the end of the school year with a school-wide event. It is called the Patriot Games. On that day, teachers set up booths for students to play around the campus. This year, the Games are on June 5, 2018. Patriot Games happens after lunch from 1:30 pm until the end of school. Ten minutes before the end of school you go to your 5th period class and get treated to ice cream.

As the last day of school approaches, students go the the Games and play. It gives them a day to enjoy themselves. The Patriot Games is one of the school’s end-of-year activities. The other one is the AdVenture Dance for AdVenture students from grades 5, 6, and 7. These events are held because the school wants students to be happy so they celebrate the end of a school year. Also, before we get into June, the gradebook closes; There are no more grades issues until next school year.

As the end of school approaches, Herman has an assembly about end-of-year activities in April, which includes rules about student behavior. At the end of the year, student behavior is watched more seriously. This means that if you get a referral, you can lose an end of year activity. The end of the year is always monitored more closely because of the fun activities and as students tend to be a bit more out of control as summer approaches.

“Kids play, have fun, and spend quality time with their friends. There’s no teaching or learning for the kids and teachers, so it’s relaxing. Teachers all have to do an event for kids and try and have fun with it. Teachers can do anything they enjoy,” Christine Hogen-Esch, a math teacher at AdVenture STEM, said.

Haben Haile, an 8th grader at Herman, said, “For the two years, I have been at this school. One of my favorite parts is the Patriot Games. They are enjoyable and the booths the teachers set up are fun.” 

The games are a fun part of the school year and anticipated by many students and teachers. It’s a nice day where students and staff can have fun and relax. At the end of the fun day, students get a popsicle to cool themselves off with as well as have a nice school day where they don’t go to class during fifth and sixth period.

    I like how this article is about memories that the students had throughout the year of 2018-2027. A nice topic to make it your last article of the year!

    I think that people have to know what we do in this school and how fun this school is like what we do in this school at the end of the year so I think that this was a good one
