368K Student Reflections….

The students of 368K, bumped off in the post-season’s Final Four match, are heading to the Consolation Round. Here they share their thoughts:

When  our team lost yesterday’s debate, at first we felt “very sad…mad and that we should have won.”

But then my team had a special celebration lunch. During lunch, we talked about how hard we worked and what a good job each team member did. That celebration  made us feel “better…proud…happy…accomplished and we felt victory, even though we lost.”

We learned that a scoreboard does not control how we feel about our accomplishments, “because we know we did our best!”
