TAKS test rewards at BC Intermediate
The fourth grade teachers at Bridge City Intermediate school decided to let the students have some fun at the end of school for doing so well on their TAKS tests.
Mrs. Portacci, the writing teacher allowed each of the students who had perfect scores on their writing test give her a whipped cream pie in the face.
Not to be outdone, Cynthia Dupuis, the math teacher, and Nicole Harris, the fourth grade reading teacher became human sundaes.
The students had to make 96 percentile in math or 93 percentile in reading on their test to participate.
It was a sticky mess that required slickers and goggles for the teachers.
Each of the students that made 100 on their writing test was given a paper plate that was filled with whipped creme. They put it in Portaccii’s face and on top of her head. Her only request was to not slam it into her face. “My husband likes my nose the way it is and I don’t want it broken,” she said.
She wiped off the goggles several times, then had to raise them up to see who had not emptied their “pie plate.”
Dupuis and Harris had brought small wadding pools to use as the bowls. They were the ice cream in pink and blue parkas.
The kids brought every ice cream topping imaginable. Chocolate syrup, marshmallows, sprinkles, cherries and bananas.
It was chaos as all the kids squeezed in close to dump all the delightful edibles they had brought to cover their “sundaes.” One of the students squeezed chocolate syrup straight into Harris’ mouth.
The kids had a blast, the teachers got blasted with a hose to clean up.
