Winning Weekend for CA Olympics

Record snowfalls and sub-zero temperatures can’t stop our Penguins from having fun and keeping the Cushing Olympics going full speed ahead!
The most recent round of the dorm-based competition kicked off during last Friday’s all-school assembly with intense limbo, hula-hoop, and half-court challenges, and continued throughout the weekend. On Saturday, students took to the stage for the “Cushing’s Got Talent” show, with performances that ranged from dancing to magic tricks, piano playing, and miming. The evening capped off with a formal masquerade dance. While it was simply too frigid to carry on with outside games, Sunday’s student/faculty basketball game was quite the event, with students snagging the win by just one point! Later activities inside the (warm!) dining hall included board games, a chili cook-off, and a cupcake-decorating contest.
All in all, it was a great way to spend the weekend with friends and friendly competition. And special thanks to Mrs. Cara Clarke for her superb planning and enthusiasm! Final points to be added to the 2014-2015 tallies:
Alumni - 105
