Boardman students rewarded with bubble ball contest


Cheers echoed all the way from the Center Intermediate School’s gymnasium and into the parking lot Thursday.

The boisterous sounds followed a collection of bubbles bouncing around the gym floor. Inside each bubble was a Center student.

The school recently participated in Box Tops for Education, a General Mills program that provides funding to participating schools. The Parent-Teacher Association rewarded the top-collecting home runs with a special treat: Bubble ball.

“Bubble ball, for the kids and for the teachers alike, is just something fun. They just love it,” said fifth-grade social studies teacher Jennifer Dravecky.

Students are enclosed in the large, clear, inflatable “bubbles,” then play a game of soccer. The goal is to score goals on the other team, with the added twist of running into other bubbles.
