As part of One School, One Book, which required all students at this school to read The Hunger Games over the summer, this school will be staging a reenactment of the Hunger Games Tuesday, Oct. 2.

The event will be held on the multi-purpose field during C-block and will consist of seven different challenges, according to athletic director Tom Giusti. At the start, there will be 26 “tributes.” Each of the first six challenges will eliminate four “tributes” and the last two “tributes” will compete in the final challenge in the center of the field, Guisti said.

Students can volunteer to participate tomorrow in homeroom. Then, next Wednesday in homeroom, principal Jennifer Price will draw and announce the 13 boys and 13 girls who will participate in the Hunger Games reenactment.

The physical education/health and wellness and Library Learning Commons departments are working together to plan this event.

“I think it’s a really creative idea to physically reenact the Hunger Games,” junior Bethany Lehman said. “Giving the words of The Hunger Games an actual presence in our school will make it a memorable reading experience and an exciting one.”
