It was another full week in the middle school with 6th graders working on pizza ovens, 7th graders analyzing packaging and 8th graders writing laws.Thanks to parents for coming in for conferences.  The week ended with a track meet for much of the middle school. The students not in track were able to help out at Dragon’s Hollow. They sorted pickets and color-coded screws and did whatever else they were asked. They were rewarded with free pizza and drinks, free cookies, and free carousel rides:).

We will return to Dragon’s Hollow on Thursday with the 6th and 8th graders. The 7th graders will be enjoying their trip to Paradise Valley!
