On October 18th many of Maryland schools were closed for the Maryland State Education Association Conference (MSEA) in Ocean City. High Road Schools across the Eastern Shore took advantage of this day and took their learning and team building outside of the classroom. All staff came together to partake in team building activities and events. The group was separated into different teams and sent on a scavenger hunt around the area. Teams were able to work collaboratively together to accomplish goals and tasks and had some fun on the way. Teams also displayed some classroom spirit by dressing up and showing their team spirit. Prizes were awarded for best team spirit, overall winner of the activities and runner up. The best team spirit award went to Choptank Elementary Team for their group spirit as the “Powerpuff Girls and Professor Utonium. The Kent Alternative Program took home the award for finishing the Scavenger hunt with the most points and Cambridge South Dorchester High team came in as a runner up!
One of the highlights was seeing all the team members practice yoga in a public setting. Taking time to bond and develop team building skills is one of the many reasons for a positive team culture here on the Eastern Shore.
