The Buffalo Ridge Elementary (BRE) front office staff aka the Front Office Misfits (FOM) were back at it again this year for their second annual box top collecting challenge. The FOM challenged the students at BRE to see who could collect the most Box Tops for Education broken down by classrooms.
The first place winners were none other than the FOMs, and in second place was Jenna DiLoreto’s third grade class. The two winning teams then participated in a kickball championship on Thursday, November 10 on the school’s field. The third graders put up a good fight, but were down with a score of 10 to 7 at the end of the second inning. The game was called in the middle of the third inning due to time constraints.
Office clerk Corin Meibos said, “The Misfits admitted that it was a little overwhelming walking out to the backstop and seeing a swarm of students wearing their green grade level t-shirts prepared to take them on in the kickball game for the Box Top competition. Some third graders were overheard afterwards stating that the Misfits were tougher than they thought! It was a great game!”
