Rosh Chodesh Adar Aleph breakfast at the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls turned into a “Vanehefoch Hu” when Color War broke out.
The theme was Purim, and each grade received a color and name relating to the chag. The Green Team freshmen were Orah V’Simcha, Team Red sophomores turned things around with Vanehefoch Hu, Purple Juniors were Kimu V’kablu Hayehudim, and Team Blue Seniors received L’eit Hazot Higat LeMalchus.
The next morning morning, the school was awash in color as each team’s hues vied for attention in the hallways and SKA bowling alley. The teams split into squads to compete at Musical Chairs, Hula Hoops, Panoply, Crazy Races, Bingo, Project Runway and a Brachos Bee.
After team practice and lunch, it was time for presentations. The SKA judges had difficult decisions to make as the four grades displayed their amazing talents.
Color War was finally won by the seniors. Although the other three grades did not win, they were all proud of what they had accomplished in the day and a half of competition.
SKA Color War ended with spirited dancing and incredible achdus between the grades.
