High School Holds Their Own Hunger Games

As a teacher, this both warms my heart and excites me.  A school in Connecticut is holding their own Hunger Games complete with the reaping, a pink haired Effie and a cornucopia gracing the middle of the school gym. THIS! THIS! THIS! is how you get kids excited about reading!

These are the types of events that mean long hours and using every spare second (prep times, lunch times, after school) to prepare, but in the end they are so worth it.  They also allow for the unique and quirky kids to shine because these are the kids who will come up with the best ideas and show up in the best costumes!  Kudos to Bristol Eastern High School's Teachers, Staff and Students.  May the odds be ever in your favor!

I am also happy to hear about this! The video is very creative. I hope this event will be a success so other schools will follow.
