Each fall Middle School students role the dice to see who wins in our annual Jeopardy assembly! This year's neck and neck competition was held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013. Here’s how it works: Students meet in homeroom groups to answer questions that will be part of the game. Each homeroom sends a representative to the stage to create a “grade level team” for the competition; then teams choose a category and a value and are given an “answer.” They have one minute to generate a response—in question form, of course! Categories that are typically covered include Middle School Life, Quakerism, GFS in General and Faculty Facts.
During this year's game, it was neck and neck down to the finish. It really looked like the seventh grade reps were down for a sure win, but they tied at the last minute with the sixth grade by failing to make a wager in the final jeopardy round. Sorry guys! Better luck next year!
A special thanks goes out to Deb Brackett and Jeff Fetterman who organized the assembly and to Will Terry for these great action shots!
Test your GFS IQ with some of the “answers” from last year's competiton:
Middle School Life for 100: “The names of the two faculty members who have been to a country in Africa.”
General GFS for 300: “The year GFS was founded.”
Faculty Facts for 200: “The names of five MS teachers who have at least one pet at home.”
Among Friends for 200: “The name of the person who founded Quakerism and the country in which it was founded.”
So... How’d you do?
