March 9, 2023—Throughout the 2022-2023 school year, High School East has been exploring the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Step 4 is “Think Win Win,” and since implementing these habits has been a school-wide initiative, something fun was in store for all students.

During each activity period last week, every class had the opportunity to participate in a human knot, which is exactly what it sounds like and which involves collaboration and coordination. The top teams from last week competed today to show off their ability to work together in order to create a win win experience for all.

This showdown was knot to be missed, with lots of laughs and tangled limbs. And the winning team truly earned it, somehow coordinating their efforts to complete their knot in less than two seconds. That’s certainly a win win. Slideshow photos of the fun are courtesy of Allison Goodwin.
