Place this date on your calendar, Sunday, May 23. Come out and help us celebrate this fun event associated with the 21st Century Grant. We will host the final event -- a rally involving teams of two or more participants. The teams will walk, bike and drive on courses laid out over our delightful valley. The rules and aspects of the rally will be explained in detail later.
Congratulations to the Trout Lake Destination Imagination teams who took first place and second place trophies at the Regional competition in Tri Cities. When Ray and I lived in Tri Cities, I was working for the school district and remember going to the Regional competitions. This is a great way to fuel students' creativity and get them thinking of various options.
The middle school team finished second, coached by Karen Smith. The team composed of Trout Lake fourth and fifth graders Jessie Robertson, Tasha Johnson, Anna Nakae, Jordan Wilson, Jacob Thompson and Lucas King won second place in the State Destination Imagination Competition in Richland Washington. The team's challenge was to develop a plot with the title "The Plot and the Pendulum." In the play, a toddler wreaks havoc with a well bucket, causing a flood , consumption by a king fisher and a fire. Fortunately, all ends well. The team's improvisational play was developed in one minutes' time from the letters Y. A. and S. which they expanded to "You are Such....." . It's no surprise that the team did well with that one
The elementary team under the direction of Katy McKinney finished first and will go to the state competition on April 3. This is excellent! Good Luck at state!
Pinochle Season at Jonah Ministries is over for now. Everybody had a good time playing cards. We wish to thank Jonah Ministries for giving us such a pleasant place to play pinochle.
Spring cross country skiing from Smith Butte snow park was great all last week. The views of Mt. Adams were beautiful. The Mt. Adams Nordic Club has offered some fun trips this season and will have a few opportunities during the summer to support cross country skiing. Call Ray Thygesen at 395-2318 for information about the cross country ski club.
Students enjoy your spring Vacation! Sandi Thygesen and Bonnie Reynolds
