  • Some recess football and English class boxing

    Posted by Greg Chalfin on 11/6/2019

    After a great set of Fall Conferences, students have had a terrific week as the trimester begins to wind toward its conclusion. Students took advantage of the beautiful weather with some touch football at recess, and 8th graders had the opportunity to visit a boxing gym, living out some of what they have learned about in reading the novel, The Power of One.
