Slocum Elementary School Students Test Their Knowledge

Students of all grade levels from Edith L. Slocum Elementary School in the Connetquot Central School District put their knowledge to the test on Sept. 26 during an engaging game show, “Brain Challenge,” as presented by Hollyrock Entertainment.

An enthusiastic emcee and his assistant worked with the students, who were divided into two competitive teams and accompanied by their teachers who assumed the role of team captains. The emcee used a timer to challenge the students to recognize their numbers, letters, and answer grade level history, math and spelling questions. They were also challenged to demonstrate their ability to dance, use a hula hoop, and test their strength in a tug of war competition.

The highly engaged participants, along with their teachers, were challenged both physically and mentally, and came away from this hourlong game show competition with a higher feeling of comradery amongst their peers.
