Gaga Ball Rules…new playground game: (rules may vary some but this is the general idea of the game)

 

  • All players start with one hand touching a wall of the pit.
  • When the ball enters the pit, the players scream ‘GA’ for the first two bounces, and ‘GO’ on the third bounce, after which the ball is in action.
  • Once the ball is in play, any player can hit the ball with an open or closed hand.
  • If a ball touches a player below the knee (even if the player hits himself or herself) he or she is out and leaves the pit. If a player is hit above the knees, the play continues.
  • If a ball is caught on a fly, the player who hit the ball is out.
  • When a player is out, he/she will leave the pit.
  • Do no sit or stand on the wall.
  • Players cannot hold the ball.
  • You can bounce the ball off the wall to get someone out.
  • Last player standing is the winner of that round.

Students! How many socks in are in your box? Socktober runs from now until October 31st. The side who collects the highest percentage of socks will win the traveling Golden Sock trophy and a party. Past winners were Mrs. Krause’s JK class and Mrs. Swisher’s Kindergarten class. We are also holding a competition with Oscar Howe Elementary in Sioux Falls. Let’s bring the bragging rights to Groton for Socktober! Socktober is sponsored by the Groton Area Elementary Student Council.

 

Please turn in all Box Tops and Loaves for Learning labels at this time.  Our Fall Collection will finalize on October 26th.  Please continue to save labels and turn them in over the winter as we will also have a Spring Collection.  Thank You.

 

Snow Queen Talent Competition forms are in the office. Forms need to be turned in to Mr. Swanson by Monday, October 29. Those performing will set up a run-through time with Mr. Swanson. Preliminary cuts may be made if there is a large number of performers.
