Students were put into groups and then had to work together to decide what their pinata was going to be. They are currently working on making the pinatas. Some designs include a Minion; a Creeper from Minecraft; a slice of watermelon; and Bevo's building. A panel of judges will judge the pinatas on May 12. Winning teams from each grade -- 6th, 7th & 8th -- will win an ice cream party.
