Timberwolf Trot: Another Success

Every year, Washington holds a day for all students and staff to take a break from learning and have fun with new experiences they are interested in. This day, on April 28, was high interest day. At some point on this day, all grades participated in a fun run: the Timberwolf Trot. The Timberwolf Trot gives all students an opportunity to get some fresh air and get moving. It also is a fundraiser to help the PTA raise money to sponsor other fun events and field trips.

This year Mrs. Kannass’s class was in the lead with $3711.50. In second place was Mrs. Gonzales-Dobbe’s class with $3457, and in third place was Mr. Pinn’s class with $2386. Washington worked hard and skyrocketed past our goal of $17,000.00, raising more than 27 thousand dollars in pledges.

At the trot, an active high school student came to speak to the students about being active and healthy. Music was playing while students ran around the blacktop to beat the goal of one mile. While students weren’t running, they had fun activities all day. Overall, the day was fun and successful. Washington thanks all the presenters for making the day great.

Highlight on French Fries

The Story of French Fries

The french fry’s history will probably be always unknown, but the french fry is probably either French or Belgian. This story of the fry is what some historians believe: In Belgium, it was common to fry up small fish for their base for their meals. But when the river would freeze, the supply of the fish was very limited. Instead, they would fry up potatoes the same way that they would to the fish. This was the side of the story for Belgium.
