Elementary game night is one of the many events occurring at OHS to help raise money for the 2018 Cash Drive. Elementary game night was on Monday, Dec. 3 in the OHS gymnasium from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. The night included games students enjoyed playing while they were in elementary school, such as pin guard, bench ball, and dodgeball. Student council member, junior Liv Larson said, “Elementary game night is a night where teams of high school kids can enjoy the games we used to love in elementary school.”

Anyone could participate in the games, as long as they had a team of 10 to 15 players and one coach. Elementary game night is very competitive, as teams look to lead theirs to victory. Game night is played in a tournament style based on wins and the top four teams advanced to play in the championship rounds. Elementary game night participant, senior Adnan Abdullahi said, “Honestly, it’s so much fun bringing back elementary games we use to play when we were younger and then now playing them with friends.”

Students paid to participate with the fee of $1, and the total amount raised by the end night was $51 dollars. All the money raised goes towards the schools goal of $8,000 for We All Play and the all-inclusive playground.
