 “It takes energy to get angry. It eats you up inside. I can't waste my energy like that and expect to get ahead. When they left, it took everything I had in me just to survive. Now I have to stay focused. I've just gotta take care of it myself'-- Joe Rantz.” Could you survive if left on your own at the mere age of 15? Find out how one man did just that and even went on to win Olympic Gold in The Boys in the Boat (Young Reader’s Edition) by Daniel James Brown. Then, join our Olympic Book Club on Tuesday 3/6. See Mrs. Hollis or Mrs. Mourek for details.

The 7th grade A team hit the accelerator button last night as the team cruised to a 20-6 victory over Batavia Gold.  Jacquelyn Weppner played her best game of the year and scored two points while Erin Slagle and Hanna Van Camp D'd it up big time.  

The 7th Grade Girls' B Basketball team also put the pedal to the metal last night with a big W over Batavia Gold; final score 37-12! Natalie Buchanan did an outstanding job finishing last night, scoring a whopping 20 points. Morgan Hodgdon added 7 to the board. Ainsely Novay and Madelyn Ptak each contributed 4, and Simone Silva had a great steal and breakaway layup. The whole team played awesome.

The 8th grade girls’ basketball team went to the dog pound last night in a rematch of the Kaneland tournament championship game.  Although the Vikings had more shots and steals then Batavia, they were unable to capitalize and lost by 8.
