Juniors enjoy History/English tour to east coast

The annual History/English educational tour for juniors returned safely early Friday morning.  Students went to Gettysburg, Washington DC and Williamsburg, Virginia.  At Gettysburg students toured the battlefield with Mr. Ram sharing stories and details of the three day battle then traveled to Washington DC and explored the International Spy Museum and ate supper at Union Station.  That evening, students took a walking tour of the FDR, MLK, Lincoln, Korean War and Vietnam War memorials.  The next day students spent time in the Newseum–a six level museum dedicated to print and broadcast journalism and news reporting.  The afternoon was free time for students to explore one of the many museums in the area: the American History Museum, Natural History Museum, National Gallery of Art, the Air & Space Museum or the National Archives.  Next was a trip to Arlington National Cemetery where Mr. Ram’s friend and former student, Daryl Willard, who is a former Tomb Guard and currently stationed at the Pentagon, gave a guided tour.  The evening plan was to attend a professional baseball game: Orioles vs Nationals, however the game was rained out.  On Tuesday the tour headed to Pamplin Historical Park in Virginia where students engaged in a four hour experience that included some hands-on activities as part of the “soldiers life” battlefield exhibit.  The next two days started and finished in the historical triangle: Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg.  After exploring colonial Williamsburg, students went to Norfolk and toured the USS Wisconsin battleship.  As luck would have it the rained out baseball game was rescheduled for Thursday afternoon so everyone was happy to return to DC and watch the Nationals play the Orioles.  The Orioles won.  After the game everyone loaded onto the bus for the trip back to Madison Academy.

SA Scavenger Hunt tradition continues

The Student Association is hosting the annual Scavenger Hunt in the Madison Academy gym beginning at 8pm. This is a class competition that involves not only the students and staff but includes parents as well.  Each class brings items from home and school and spreads them out in one of the four corners of the gym. In the center of the gym the announcer will call for an item.  Each class will look through their stuff and pass it to the runner who will then take it to the table in the center of the gym.  The first class to get the correct item to the table earns one point. If the class runner has the exact item they earn one point.  If the class has the correct item category they earn one point.  For example, if a state quarter–Tennessee is called each class that brings that item to the table will earn one point for a state quarter, one point if it is a Tennessee state quarter, and one point if the class is the first to place it on the table.  There is a time limit to find and bring the called items to the table.  At the end of each round is an untimed event, such as who can drink a bottle of water the fastest.  Also during each round in random places classes are called to create a pyramid: a base of four, then three, then two, then one who will raise their hands to show they are done.

There are many rounds and each class usually is close to the lead for a time.  After each round the standings are announced to indicate how many points a class earned in the competition to that point. At the end the final standings are given and a winner of the scavenger hunt is announced.  Not only do students and sponsors participate in running but parents can do so too.  The parents have a key role to play in the event just by showing up.  The SA awards Spirit points to students and parents that participate in this event. Record is taken at 8pm and those who are at the gym are awarded spirit points for their class.  At the end of the school year the class that has the most spirit points is given a $350 prize.
