BFA Students Host First-Ever Gaming Tournament

Target 3 –  Flexible Learning Environments.  “FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation,  and differentiated learning opportunities for all.

Action Steps – Provide students with access to content, resources, and methods for learning beyond the  school day and beyond the school walls.  Develop opportunities for students to collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize in all learning settings.

BFA recently hosted its first-ever Magic: the Gathering tournament, with 23 students from grades 5-12 participating. The tournament ran from all day on Saturday. Students gathered first thing in the morning, received packs of random cards, and constructed their decks on the spot that they would play with for the remainder of the day.
