The seventh grade team earned a first place trophy, and the eighth grade team placed fourth out of nineteen schools. Additionally, several students earned individual awards: out of 101 eighth graders, Grace Brack placed 14th, Hannah Stoppenhagen placed 12th, and Isabella Getgey earned a Best of Round award for her third story.

Parents of 8th Graders Going on the Chicago Trip
Soon our 8th graders will be blowing through the “Windy City.” There are items we need, and a few volunteers to assist in preparation for the trip would be greatly appreciated.
To make the bus ride more comfortable, we are asking for donations of mini-water bottles for the students, soft drinks for the teachers, and coolers.
There are also volunteer opportunities to assist with the luggage drop-off on Thursday, February 13th. There are two shifts available, so check the sign-up form below. Please help where you can.
