Students Vs. Teachers Volleyball At Robert Seaman

Robert Seaman Elementary School’s student body gathered in the gymnasium for a much anticipated student-faculty volleyball game. The eager fifth-graders filed into the gymnasium, prepared to challenge the faculty with an array of aces, assists, serves and spikes. The faculty lineup, led by Principal Adam Winnick, was also prepared with a display of athleticism, zeal and lots of enthusiasm.

The fifth-graders were divided into two groups, with three sets of games played by each group. Mrs. Treiber’s class and half of Mrs. Horowitz’s class played the first set of games. The final score was 2-1 in favor of the fifth-graders, with three close matches. The second team, comprised of Mrs. Gladd’s class and the other half of Mrs. Horowitz’s class, was also filled with excitement and thrills.  The final score was again 2-1, fifth-graders. The teams were fortunate to have Physical Education Coaches Patrick Smith on hand as a referee and Lauren Browne as a scorekeeper, counting every point and watching every move.

The event marked another huge success for the yearly competition of faculty versus fifth-grade, with great sportsmanship displayed by all participants. The entire student body demonstrated great school spirit and supported both the faculty and their schoolmates. Special thanks go out to Principal Adam Winnick, Mr. Smith and Mrs. Browne for organizing this event.
