One of the most exciting and engaging events of the school year is the annual Sportsmanship Floor Hockey Tourney. This year was especially enjoyable for Room 15 kids in that one of our two tourney teams, The Hockey Warriors, won the championship, beating the Pizza Sharks from Mrs. Torrey’s class, 3-2. While winning the tourney was great, the emphasis is clearly focused on sportsmanship. Before and after each game, we “debriefed” by talking about how we demonstrated good sportsmanship and what we saw from our opponents, both good and bad. Hopefully, our kids walk away from this tourney with a healthier attitude about sports and “winning.” Following the tourney, all the 4th and 5th graders cast votes for the classroom that demonstrated the best sportsmanship over the course of the tournament, and this year they selected our class. Congrats to all the Room 15 kids on winning the sportsmanship trophy. Great job!
