6TH GRADE TAKE OVER LINCOLN PLACE (FOR AN AFTERNOON!)
Sixth graders took over Lincoln Place for an evening of grade bonding
! They played gaga and bingo, did arts and crafts, went to the "spa," tasted cheese and doodled on white boards before a pizza party with pies they made with Chef Bridget in the cafeteria. Then they went on a scavenger hunt throughout the building (during which they encountered teachers dressed as characters from history and pop culture), which led them to ice cream in the courtyard.
