Good sportsmanship is the key and the name of the game around Holland Elementary School.
Ms. Danaj's awesome second-graders held a checker tournament and it was definitely a nail biter from start to finish. Every child who wanted to participate was paired up for a first round. They played the best two out of three games with the winner moving to the last round.
Ms. Danaj had volunteer parents who supervised each game and kept the tournament moving along. All participants received medallions and the winner and runner up received trophies. The parents were also thanked for their help with medallions and plenty of applause from the students.
