Campion Academy students competed in a night of class festivities last Saturday. Typically held outside on a Sunday, the annual class-competition event, the Student Association (SA) Picnic, had been rescheduled for Saturday night in the gymnasium due to the smoke and poor air quality. SA members planned creative activities for students to enjoy with a glow-in-the-dark theme.
Sandra Arlt, junior, said, “I thought it was really smart that we could do it inside, it was nice not to get eaten up by the bugs. I think the fact that we did it Saturday night was cool as well because it meant no sun burns. It was a fun time and I made really cool memories.”
The night started out with a slightly altered game of tug-of-war; classes chose just five students to pull the rope to allow for social distancing. Despite the slippery floor, seniors quickly took the lead.
In a new game, students had to jump down a glow-stick hula hoop path and battle it out in a game of rock-paper-scissors with other classes. In an unusual turn of events, freshmen got first place in that game. However, seniors took back first place in the annual mini bike relay race. SA ended off the night with a game of musical chairs and sing-alongs.
Even with the change of time, venue, and added safety precautions, Campion students made the most of the night. Nicole Dominguez, sophomore, commented, “I thought it was amazing and so different. I personally think it was better than last year. I truly had so much fun with all my friends and got to talk to people I don’t usually talk to.”
