Shulamith High School is known for finding ways to keep the energy up and the environment positive even during these difficult times.

Last Thursday, grade cohorts gathered in different locations for the “Greater by Grade” event. Each grade was issued the same four challenges and divided amongst themselves to work on the competition that spoke to their passions and strengths. “Conquer the Cake” asked students to represent the quote, “No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it” using two plain sheet cakes and dozens of edible decorating materials. From musical notes to the 11th grade cake-sheet-of-music, the cakes looked right out of a TLC baking show. Others hurried to the STEM challenge, which asked students to create a 3D object that could be easily transported. The STEM creation had to represent, “Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much.” Students were hard at work shaping tiny clay people with care and diligence. To stay on topic, art supplies were spread on a table for students to participate in “Mask Attack.” Here, students were asked to create a line of masks – masks worthy enough for students to be willing to wear on Central Ave. Sophomores thought outside the box, using neon Sharpies to color spirals and spraying with water giving it a trendy tie dye look. The masks had to convey the message, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” Finally, in the “Swag-Off” groups, students designed sweatshirts, blankets, and hair ties that represented the saying, “Individually we are one drop, together we are an ocean.” The winner of the Swag-Off will have the design featured during the next ShulaMerch sale.

With music playing and faculty encouraging students, the joy was palpable. SHS is grateful to Dean of Students Mrs. Ricky Gaerman and Director of Student Activities Ms. Esty Munk for creating this awesome brain break and to faculty for helping to facilitate and helping grade cohorts unite!
