Happy Presidents Day!

As the first federal holiday to honor an American citizen, Presidents Day was originally celebrated on Washington's actual birthday, February 22, but has evolved to a sort of joint celebration of both George Washington's and Abraham Lincoln's big days (Lincoln's birthday is Feb 12th) as well as a celebration of all U.S. presidents.

THANK YOU to the PTO for the Valentine's Day goodies last week!

Throws Club
Throws Club is designed to teach students the basics of shot put, discus throw and weight throw (modified hammer throw). Lessons will be tailored to the skill and strength level of all participants. Throwing events work on improving core strength, hand/grip strength, balance, motor planning and body awareness. Proper technique, movement within the throwing circle and drills with and without implements will be the primary focus – weight training is not. This club is meant to be a unique, fun, low pressure introduction to the throws events.
  • Club is open to students in grades 1 - 12
  • Meetings are on Thursdays from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
  • Runs March 7 - May 16
  • The end of the year All Summit Meet will include a pizza party and Olympic style competition with medals awarded
  • Registration is $75
  • For more information, please download the flyer
