Elementary Olympics

The Boyd County Elementary students at the Butte attendance center celebrated the 2018 Winter Olympics the week of Feb. 12th. They learned about several different Olympic events and played a variation of a few of them.  On Monday, they learned about curling with bean bags and on Wednesday they played hockey.

Thursday’s event was ice skating. The students used paper plates for skates and competed in speed skating and pairs figure skating.
