On October 26th, Donnelly Elementary began its first basketball skills camp. It is open to 2nd - 5th grade students. We are thrilled to have 45 girls signed up for the camp! The practices are after school and will run through November 18th. A big thanks to Lauryn Walz, Traci Stanley, and Rayna Branson who have volunteered their time to coach the girls.
