Each fall the Middle School participates in an annual Jeopardy! assembly. This year's assemby was on Wednesday, September 26. 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. Last Wednesday, it really looked like the seventh grade reps were down for a sure win, but lost at the last minute to the eighth grade by miscalculating the amount they wagered in final jeopardy round. Sorry guys! Better luck next year! A special thanks goes out to Deb Brackett and Jeff Fetterman who organized the assembly.
Test your GFS IQ with some of the “answers” from last year's competiton:
Middle School Life for 100: “The names of the two people most likely to answer the phone in the MS office.”
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?
