For the JV wrestling meet tonight (1/25/2021) we will allow a maximum of 6 people from the household of each wrestler plus two additional spectators who will need to use the wrestling passes that were issued earlier this year. Everyone needs to wear a mask and practice social distancing while sitting in your designated school sections. Wrestlers for each team should also sit in the section with their fans. Thanks for your help in keeping people healthy and allowing us to have these events.
Congratulations to our girls, coaches, and wrestling program for their performance at the Girls' State Wrestling Tournament over the weekend! 132- Bailey Cox 5th 138- Tierney Perkins 8th 145- Claire Quirk 7th

Mrs. Throndson received the McElroy grant. Keystone AEA has partnered with the R.J. McElroy Trust for approximately 19 years to provide teachers with grant money to fund innovative classroom projects. This school year there were 47 teachers who applied for the grant and 16 teachers were able to get their ideas funded. Mrs. Throndson's project was STEM to Go. This project includes a backpack that contains two books (one fiction and one nonfiction) and one to two STEM activities related to the books. As a take-home option, families have the opportunity to also engage in the activities together with their children. These STEM backpacks will be able to be checked out from the elementary library.
The 5th-8th grade ELP students celebrated their participation in the Hour of Code which included a chance to be in a drawing to pie Mr. Monteith for those who completed the quest sponsored by @UnrulyStudios. With their participation, they also won the Grand Prize Raffle and received 12 Splats for the school district to use!
