Students in Teri Mabile’s sixth grade class at Gonzales Middle School practice a team building exercise Thursday. Mabile’s class, the “Thunderbolts,” was divided into groups for the exercise. Each group held hands and tried to keep a balloon in the air without letting go of each other hands, while keeping the balloon from hitting the ground. “We are doing several team building exercises throughout the school during the first week,” said Gonzales Middle School Paraprofessional Susan Minvielle. “We want all the students to get to know each other and bond as a family.”
