RAHWAY — On Friday, May 6, five teachers from Franklin Elementary School in Rahway took on the third graders in a game of volleyball. It was not, however, a battle of wits in the classroom, but rather a physical competition on the court. The event was a special treat awarded to the students for all their hard work in preparation for the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) testing.
The pep-rally style affair featured players donned in red t-shirts signifying that they were “RED-y” for the (then) upcoming state tests. When Principal Arina Robinson, stopped by to catch a glimpse of the action, the students were all smiles and giggles. Enthusiastic chants and cheers could be heard as students rooted on their favorite teachers. The teachers, too, got into the spirit of the game, playfully encouraging each other as they each grew increasingly tired after facing over 80 students divided up into 8 different teams. The students definitely proved they were ready for the challenge. (Photo courtesy of Franklin School)
