 Bloomingdale Team Craft Day

The Bloomingdale Elementary School Student Council initiated the idea to expand our family concept to teams across grades K-5 and on specific days throughout the year there would be Team Activities Day.  On December 21, 2017, the faculty and staff organized a Team Craft Day.  The entire day was centered on activities the students did with their team members from the different grade levels.  Older students helped younger students and children grew relationships with children of other ages through shared learning experiences.

Bloomingdale School is divided into 10 teams and names include: The Bears, The Hurricanes, The Unicorns and The Angels.  The activities included decorating Sugar Cookie Ornaments, stained glass window decorations for winter carnival and tree ornaments.  The classes also included a Movement class where younger and older students helped each other on scooters as well as a Robotics/ Coding class where students learned to program their own computer applications.  Through all this activity, the students were able to have a time to hear a story and have a cocoa break.  Tops Markets provided the hot chocolate for this very successful day.  As the students took their different finished products home to share with their families many said ”This was the best day ever!”  Bloomingdale School is looking forward to many other successful student initiated activities in the future.

There are many pictures from this day in the Photo Gallery Page.  Take a look!
