HR activities have students singing a different tune

D.J. Molasses and his groovy beats surprised homerooms on October 18 with a game called “Name That Tune.”

The object of the game was for the class to work together to name the songs and artists played over the PA. At the end of the game, the sheet on which the class recorded their guesses was to be turned into the office. Simply turning the sheet in scored the class a point.

“Being a homeroom leader, it was a fun first challenge for me,” sophomore Feross Ballut said. “I like how homeroom is set up this year, it’s more enjoyable with all of my friends.”

After recording the scores, the senior homerooms of English teacher Dan Dick and Chemistry teacher Andy Roth placed first with 46/50 points.

Medical Technology teacher Pat Johnson’s junior homeroom tied for second with English teacher Brienne Laskey’s sophomore homeroom, both scoring 45/50 points.

In third place, Physical Education teacher Jill Urbaniak’s freshman homeroom class scored 39/50 points.

“The Name That Tune game was fun, but the songs were too old and played too fast,” sophomore Katie Cole said. “Also, homeroom is moving a bit too slow. I feel that we need to have more homerooms.”

According to English teacher and member of the homeroom committee Sarah Huey, homeroom is different this year. It’s all based on participation, which is needed to score points for your class.

As opposed to last year’s Connection Day video, there will be a Class Olympics. The Class Olympics will have each homeroom teacher in charge of a different activity, which can be anywhere and anything.

Students from each grade will participate in each activity, hoping to score points for their class. With this new addition, anyone can win.

“We should make t-shirts for each grade,” both Cole and Ballut said.

Seniors are currently in first place with 17 points, with juniors and freshman close behind with 16 and 15 points respectively, and sophomores coming in fourth with 13 points.

The next homeroom is scheduled for November 15.
