Hello Middle School Families!

Students participated in the Waterloo Math Contest on Wednesday, May 16. We really hope that they enjoyed the experience and we looks forward to seeing the results!

Ultimate:

We had a “special guest” join us on Wednesday for gym class to teach us about the sport of ultimate. We learned a forehand and backhand throw as well as proper catching techniques. We also learned how to make boulder cuts and form a vertical stack. Fun was had! Here are some photos:
