What to expect in Action Afternoon
By: Brooke and Lindsey
Action afternoon is one of the best events that Hillview has to offer. One of the best things to it is, even if your color team is in last place, you can still win because this is the last chance to earn spirit points and they are BIG spirit points at stake. Remember that if you win Action Afternoon, it doesn’t mean you won the color team competition, but you will still have a big chance of winning and going to raging waters. You sign up for activities in your homeroom and you can sign up with your friends or, if your activities are at different times, you can cheer each other on.
Action Afternoon is full of fun activities that anyone can participate in. It’s a good idea that you hang around an activity until they start that you couldn’t sign up for, because it is likely that someone from your color team won't show up and you will be able to take their place. The activities last year included a water balloon toss, a water dunk, basketball, a shoe race, a donut on a string contest, balloon drop, giant puzzles, and baller pong. This year there is a chance that we will be able to play music and have tons of more activities because of our new field. If you are worried about competing with older kids, then you should know that you will only be competing against your grade because there will be three different stations. Be sure that you come to Action Afternoon because it is definitely something that you don’t want to miss.
