Student Spotlight - 1st Grade Catapults

The goal for our first graders was to design a catapult that would launch a snowball (piece of paper) the farthest. We measured our launches using first grade feet (they traced their shoe on paper & cut it out). We had two groups of students make it 25 first grade feet.

Bulldog Basketball

We are almost finished with the season. It was great to see all of the families here on Wednesday to support our 6th graders for their final home game. We have one more regular season game on Monday, January 11th. The tournament begins on Wednesday, January 13th.
