Check out the website for WSIL TV. Reporter Matt Rudkin has a photo of some perennials, Isaac’s feet (right?) and Mrs. Williams’ kneeling leg. We’ve got press all over town! How many people caught the news cast? Thanks to Cha Hill and Mike Brand for being such gracious hosts for the day! Pictures to come soon!
I have updated the track webpage with the results from the DQ Triangular on April 10th.
Also listed is the order of events for tomorrow’s 204 Invitational. The meet begins at 9:00 with field events. Prelims for the hurdles and the 100 M dashes will begin at 9:30. Running events will begin once the field events have been completed. The athletes need to bring a lunch (with ice packs) and snacks (if they want them) as the meet will last all day. There will also be a concession stand.
Pray for good weather and an injury free day for all the athletes on Friday!
Mrs. Small’s science students in grade 6th through 8th have been selected by the Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources to take part in the “Earth Day in the Parks” project. One school was chosen for each state park, and we were the winners for Pyramid State Park. On Thursday, April 25th our Falcons will be planting a butterfly garden and participating in some Earth Day learning activities. I find out more, read here or here!
We had a great first meet on Tuesday at Chester. Many runners have already improved on their times from last year. Our new runners also did great and learned a lot at this first meet. Good job everyone!!
The next meet is Tuesday, April 10th at the Du Quoin High School track against Du Quoin and Sesser-Valier. Field events begin at 3:30. The following is the order of events for the meet – Order of Events.
I hope all the athletes have a relaxing Easter break. Be sure to get in some running over break so you are ready for the meet on Tuesday.
There is still time to send in your order for some cool, new St. Bruno attire! The order deadline has been extended until Friday, April 13th. If you have lost your form, just print one out here – STB Apparel Order Form, complete, and send to school with your child.
Thanks to all the families that participated in 10s for Technology, our March fundraiser. Olivia Phillips collected the most 10s, and will take home a new iPad as her prize. Our technology assisted learning continues, as does our fundraising! Our projectors, iPads and MacBooks are used daily to make lessons meaningful for each K through 8th grade child in school. Thanks to all present and past donors for making these learning opportunities possible for our Falcons!
