IMG_0074  In celebration of the XLVII Super Bowl, sixth graders from Maxson Elementary School in the Mountain View School District participated in their own gridiron match-up.  The mid-morning game was an incentive for the students who successfully completed their classwork, homework and maintained good behavior for the past month.

Taking the field as the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, the two coed teams showed their skills in flag football, running plays, throwing long passes and making touch-downs.  To ensure the festive super bowl atmosphere, student vendors roamed the sidelines selling snacks, and cheerleaders eagerly cheered for the teams. IMG_0075

“The kids really look forward to our incentive activities,” said Becki Romero, sixth grade teacher.  “It’s nice to be able to reward them with such a fun activity when they work hard and dedicate themselves to their studies.”
