TTE students with their version of Vanna White and Wheel of Fortune. “Now or Never” was the winning phrase. The lucky winner had first pick at the refreshment table full of cakes and cookies.

Timber Trail Elementary Timber Team had all kinds of fun on their minds when the student leadership group coordinated a game day with the residents of Legacy Village of Castle Pines.

Members of Timber Team joined residents of Legacy Village for a fun interactive game of Wheel of Fortune. After a lengthy brainstorming session, participants solved phrases and sayings such as “now or never” and “pulled pork sandwich.” Students wore specific letters on their backs. Once a resident guessed a correct letter the emcee would spin the student around so the residents could see the letter in the phrase. Game winners were able to pick a dessert from the table of goodies provided by Timber Team families. The day ended with students and residents getting to know each other while enjoying refreshments.

“Me want cookie” could have been the winning phrase during this moment of refreshments enjoyed by students and Legacy Village residents.

The Timber Team’s mission is to provide students with an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects.
