The biggest group ever is taking on our nation's capital.
Sixteen eighth graders and four chaperones headed out at 12:30 a.m. on May 18th to tour Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area. Led by history teacher Dustin Freeman, Dr. Heath Halley and Mrs. Stephanie Salisbury and Mrs. Tara Blankenship, these students are experiencing history in a very hands on manner that will leave them with memories to last a lifetime. This is the fifth trip of this type sponsored by our school and the largest. Exceptional too are some of the opportunity these students have been given including a chance to meet a Holocaust survivor. Listening to Irene (Fogel) Weiss speak to them about her firsthand experiences during the Holocaust was both rare and memorable.
This season we finished with a 10-15 record. We battled through a season that was filled with injuries and sickness. We had three girls that unfortunately did not get to finish the season due to season ending injuries and two who never were allowed to step onto the floor due to season long sickness. I am very proud of these girls because the season ending record does not reflect the true effort,heart and hustle these girls put forth every time they stepped onto the floor. These girls drastically improved from the beginning of the season until the end and you could never count them out of any game. I am already looking forward to next season and we will truly miss our two seniors (Hunter H. and Lauren R.). The highlight of this season was bringing home the runner-up trophy from the Brashear . . .
Remembering all the good times.
