Great job on the first annual 8-South Carnival!

We loved watching the team work together to produce an event that was not only fun, but important. We raised about $1400 for our causes. That is amazing. The 8-South Teachers are incredibly proud of you. Thanks, too, for those who stayed and helped to clean up.

Ms. Baker just posted the “8-South Carnival Video” that she made onto YouTube! Check it out! This is Ms. Baker’s first-ever YouTube video! :)

It’s a class versus class challenge and, apparently, 5-6B is favored to win. However, we all know that the underdog sometimes emerges triumphant, to the surprise of all! Prizes will be awarded to the winning class during the last week of school.
