Last Friday, the wrestling team had a very impressive 57-18 victory over Chapel Hill! The meet started with Alec S., who out worked his opponent to earn a 6-4 victory. Then Riley P. and Aidan C. kept the momentum going with wins of their own. Shane M. kept the pressure on Chapel Hill as he pinned his opponent, followed by Garrett W. and Evan K. who both won by fall (pin) as well. Casey N. rounded out the Varsity match with a thrilling, and well earned double overtime victory. Well done, wrestlers!

For Ms. Maurer's Saturday school in December, 6 students learned some of the basics of photography, then ventured into Salem to explore the city through the lens of a camera. Back at school, they shared their pictures and offered feedback for their own pictures and those of their peers. All 6 of these students did a fantastic job of taking a different view of Salem and capturing that view to share.
