This afternoon, medals were awarded for exemplary success in this year's Kathy Adams Run-a-Thon. Classes assembled in the courtyard with their Buddies to applause for running laps, and then students lined up for an ice cream treat for earning well over the amount projected! Congratulations to all medalists, all runners and especially the phenomenal Run-a-Thon Committee!

Students and staff stay focused as they anticipate a week of Spring Break. The 8th graders study wave interference, while first graders determine greater than or less than.
