It happened today in second grade, and I was able to catch a quick video."

Grand Rounds
by: Mrs. Bryna Thomson, Middle School Science Teacher

Students, working in clinics of five medical specialties, teach their clinic members about each specialty after working in specialty groups and taking board exams over their specialty.

After clinic groups have learned each body system and taken their Physiology Exam, they get a “patient.” They must figure out what is wrong with their patient by researching and ordering tests. Once they have a confirmed diagnosis, they come up with a treatment plan and prognosis for their patient. This patient is then presented to a panel of medical professionals at Grand Rounds. Each clinic presents their patient to the panel and then answers the panelists’ questions about their presentation. 

Join us live Friday, April 16th for the Grand Rounds presentation.

Round one 8:00 am - 9:00 am.
Round two 10:50 am - 11:50 am.
Friday, April 9

Sports Update
Middle School Softball
Middle School softball kicked off their season last Tuesday vs Grace Community-Tyler. Katie Crum is in the pitching circle for the Warriors this season and is challenging each batter she faces. Delilah Dinaburg and Leonie Khan have made huge impacts in the outfield. Emma Bassman and Sierra Salazar have done an exceptional job in the infield. Once the Warriors got their bats going, Elisa Haden and Clio Byrd were strong forces while running the bases.

“The girls' bat speed is improving and we are getting stronger every time we step on the field,” said Head Coach Daniel Bracken.

The girls are back in action next Tuesday, April 13th vs Calvary Christian at the Warrior Athletic Complex.
Varsity Softball
by: Head Coach Devon Potter

Last Thursday the varsity girls softball team took the field against Coram Deo. Senior Maya Ariss had the first hit of the night with a line drive down the right-field line allowing fellow senior Georgina Stephens to score. We were able to bounce back from a tough loss on Tuesday and play a much stronger game. On Tuesday, April 6th, the girls took on First Baptist Academy. Junior Megan Gillman started off the Warriors with a hard hit up the middle. Following her lead, Sophomore Emory Johnston hit a single to the right-center gap. The girls really got their bats going and kept the rally alive when Gillman had another solid hit up the middle. The hitting rally allowed the girls to score 5 runs. We are using the momentum of each game to get better. Our next game is today, April 8th at Lucas Christian.

Go Warriors!
