Greenback Night was a success! Two members of the Wrangler Wrap were able to go around the school and take pictures of everything. Including parents in the classrooms for once! That’s right Wranglers, the parents had to go to class instead of the students. The parents got to meet the teachers and get a glimpse of the curriculum and homework for the year.
Although 8th grade lost all of the games the go team girls kept the score very tight. The team played with dignity and pride for our school. One player, by the name of ,Katelyn Lytle, served ten consecutive balls over the net for the highest volley of the series. We had a lot of good plays and room for improvement and growth. After the game the Coach said “I am happy with how they played”. Before the game some of the players on A,B,and Go team even had a team chant. With more games to come, this reporter is looking forward to a great season.
Monday, September 8, 2014 the 8th grade lunch room was buzzing with the exciting lesson that took place during science classes today. When Mr. Ankrom, 8th grade science teacher, was asked what was happening in class, he stated “We were experiencing and exploring balanced and unbalanced forces by having a tug-o-war competition between 8th grade Science classes. Mr. Griffith took advantage of the rope when all the forces were balanced by standing on the rope.” Solomon Villareal – staff writer for the Wrangler Wrap captured this video - 8th Grade Science Classes – tug-o-war
