Last Soccer Games of the School Year
On Tuesday 10-27-2015 the 7/8 Boys and Girls had their last soccer game of the season against Georgia.  The scores of 3 vs 3 for the boys and 0 vs 0 for the girls suggests a pretty even match between the two schools.  It was a beautiful late afternoon to watch the games.

Walk to School Results
One hundred and thirty seven students and eighteen adults walked or biked into school on Wednesday 10-28-2015 (155 total). We had higher numbers last year at this time in the season with equivalent weather. Next week, on November 4th, consider prying yourself off the bus or out of your family car and join us.  Walking and biking with friends on Wednesdays feels good.  Walking and biking are easy ways to get some exercise are a great way to start your day.
