Salinas Staff Olympics: I'm Doing What?

It's a fun event each year and a great way for students to relax and see their teachers and administrators in a different light. The Salinas Elementary School Staff Olympics gets teachers and staff to step outside their comfort zone to participate in some rather odd and goofy events. It prepares students in a fun way to do their best and not to sweat the rest even when it comes to doing things that can be challenging like the STAAR test.  It's about getting students in the right frame of mine.  They did that with such competitive events like Trash Can Basketball, Clipboard Tennis, Cut and Paste Race...and a new event called Scoop It Up. It should be noted that this event occurred on the same day as the anniversary of the first modern Olympic in Athens in 1896. 


It was a busy day because going on at the same time was Principal For A Day.  The PFAD at Salinas was Jeremy Brimhall who is the Director of Education for the San Antonio Symphony.  He got an eye-full at the Staff Olympics and then followed the real principal Martin Silverman around to get a well-rounded look at the school day. We appreciate Mr. Brimhall coming out and spending time with our students.
