March was filled with MADNESS. We decided to join in on all the excitement of March Madness here at Grizzly Club by coming up with our own unique tournaments.
Bey Blade Tournament
Hop and Pop Challenge
WE made our own TORTILLAS
Cup stack and Human Tic Tac Toe Challenge
We have made it to our second round and there are some upsets (by seeding and staff reaction)! Toy Story held off losing to Robin Hood by 4 votes, Tarzan thrashed frozen by 43 votes, Up narrowly avoided the upset by 3 votes and 101 Dalmatians held on to pull off the Incredible upset (pun intended).
The next round of voting will come Monday! Stay tuned and our winner will be announced Friday April 6th.
Grizzly Club welcomes in March Madness with a tournament of our own that will determine what is the greatest Disney Film. In our field of 64 films, ranked and seeded by average score(*), Disney and Pixar Animated films face off vying to be named #1.
Students will fill out brackets selecting their favorite film. Starting this week we will hold votes to determine what move moves forward from each match up leading to our ultimate winner. Students with the most accurate brackets win a prize and the #1 film chosen will be shown on April 5th!
We encourage parents to join the fun and fill out a bracket. You can turn it in to be posted along our big boards. Attached is the Disney Bracket.
* Films were given an average score based on their ratings from IMdb, Metacritic and Rottentomatoes. The films were then broken into 4 divisions and seeded 1-16. Top 4 films became one seeds, next 4 two seeds and so on.

Yummy in our tummies! We decided to stray away from the traditional "Taco Tuesday" and instead went for awesome Taco Thursday! These kiddos were THRILLED to put together their own taco's. Chicken, GUAC, Cheese. a dash of hot sauce and there you have it, the PERFECT taco. We even taught them the different ways to wrap all those goodies up!! This sure made for a fabulous Fiesta Thursday here at Grizzly club!!!
Have a great weekend guys!! :)
You're off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting!
So get on your way!

February the shortest month of the year, was extra short this month because of all of the SNOW. Even with so many days off we were able to make Para cord bracelets, play some Jeopardy, have a Cupcake War and don't forget Taco Tuesday and Thursday. ~Miss Sonja
Take a look at are SUPER FANTASTIC BOW TIES! We made these cute creations out of plain old playing cards..... These girls had so much fun making these cards stand out. They turned them into hair bows, bow ties, necklaces, and bracelets! They rocked these awesome inventions all afternoon. Alice month sure has been fun, we hope to keep this trend going... hopefully through next month! Take a look below at our Fancy creations, and the fun we had in the process of making them.
Have a wonderful weekend grizzly family!!!!

Our kids at Grizzly club took a little break from our Alice in Wonderland activities to do something our parents always tell us not to. . . . Play with our food.
