The Amazing Shake is a one of a kind competition that was started at the Ron Clark Academy. It tests students manners, discipline, respect, professional conduct, charisma, the ability to think on their feet, and problem solving. These are skills that we value and teach at Smyrna Primary School. In 2018, the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce partnered with Rutherford Works to host a county wide Amazing Shake Competition for the 5th graders in Rutherford County. Smyrna Primary was invited to compete in this first of its kind event, and has participated the past two years.
At SPS, our students compete in several rounds of competition. Each round becomes a little more difficult, and tests the students in different areas. All students are invited (and encouraged) to invite in our first Work the Room event. From here, only the top scoring students advance to following rounds until we crown our Two SPS Amazing Shake Champions! These two students then travel to compete in the Rutherford County District Amazing Shake Competition.
