More Than a Game

This past Friday, as is every Friday at TRA, was House Lunch.  The House teams meet while eating lunch and conversing and/or planning and then gather to do a project, play tournament games or engage in service for the school or community.  This was a tournament day and the houses battled in an EPIC game of capture the flag.  Highlights of this bonding game included: 1. Seeing some of our new students become key players for their house and a few become flag-capturing heroes!  2. Watching students who are more inclined to outdoor activity than indoor academics, find joy and success in working hard with their multi-grade team of TRA students. 3. But most heartening and bonding of all was the participation of the teachers of those students. More than a dozen red-shirted students streamed after Mr. Hettick as he ran with their flag toward his safe zone. He was caught! Several teachers attempted to stop some of the upper-class students from stealing their team’s flag and when outright speed failed them, there may have been a sort of wrap up capture that deflated those speedy kids.  

It’s hard to explain, if you weren’t at the park with us, while the sun shone down and the student body enjoyed the thrill of battle together, with their teachers.  Some of the photos might help you capture the feeling.  Maybe next time you should join us
