Welcome back to Weekly Warrior, readers! Mrs. Larson’s class is kicking the week into gear early. They already have started learning about the phases of the moon and started some beautiful drawings to show the different phases.
Ms. Maire announced that starting this week Paul Douville will be her long-term sub. Paul and the 3-6th grade class will be finishing up their unit on Ancient India this week and will start dissecting owl pellets at the end of this week and the beginning of next week. Ms. Maire said she will miss everyone while she is away. We will miss you too Ms. Maire, and we wish you the best!
The Junior High Co-ed Basketball team played Loyalton Junior High boys on Friday, February 12 and won, 13-9. Aaron and Austin Foster dominated in rebounds along with Esmeralda Nevarez. Jacob Rust had some beautiful shots, followed by Jesse Folsom and Katie Epps with their awesome defense! You all did so well and we are so proud and happy to get to watch you play!
The Varsity Basketball team played Herlong at home the same night, February 12, and won 42-36. It was a very exciting game for all the players and the crowd. Ramon Nevarez got many rebounds, and Arroyo Campbell played like a superstar with his steals and passes. Tommy Dines put in a three pointer at the buzzer!
The Varsity played Core Butte on February 16th at home as well. We started out the game dominating the court, but after half time they began to catch up, and by the end of the game they had surpassed us by 5 points, the final score resulting in 39-44. Niles Bosworth had an awesome highlight with a block against a player twice his size! The Player of the Game award went to Rosendo Marquez. Good game Warriors!
Last week, February 16-19, was Spirit Week to show school spirit for the Varsity Basketball team’s last set of games. This was one of the most successful Spirit Weeks this year! Everybody dressed up for almost every day! Tuesday was Twin Tuesday. Wednesday was Green and Gold Day. Thursday was Super Hero Thursday. And Friday was Physical Friday. Congratulations to the Jellypuff Spartan Spirit team for winning the spirit competition!
