TVBC Middle School

Stay At Home Challenge

Dear Middle Schooler,

As we are home for the next few weeks, we have a challenge for you!! Do as many as you would like or none if that is your fancy! Either way, there will be prizes awarded our first day back to class! The only thing we ask is as you complete a challenge, be sure to document it with a picture or video and send it to us! We will compile everything you send in and judge accordingly.

So, dust off those Legos and warn your mom that you will be baking in the kitchen and let’s have some fun. Check our website regularly and we will post some pictures of you guys taking on these challenges and maybe a few of your leaders doing the same! We miss you and know this too shall pass but until then, let’s keep in touch!

 

Have fun and let’s see what you can do!

Trevor testing his homemade smoke bomb experiment. Rumor has it, he mostly deals in "stink" bombs. Hoping Mom or Dad were around, for "the bowl, we ruined the bowl." And the classic, "Should we call 911 or just get a shoe to put the fire out." Gotta love stay-at-home entertainment. Oh and, please don't try this at home.
