Morning Stretch

Second grade students prepare for the day ahead with a brief moment of morning stretches.

SPRING SPORTS NEWS:   The Lady Lions opened their season with a win over Bristol with the pitching/catching team of Hayley and Tegan coming out strong to set the stage for the afternoon. Defensively the girls worked as a team to hold Bristol to 6 runs. The Lions ran the bases aggressively and hit the ball with confidence, Anna led the team in hits with 3. While the eighth graders batted in most of the runs: Hayley - 4, Allison and Maddy - 3, Tegan - 2, and Katelin - 1. Our next game is this afternoon at home vs Wiscasset. GO LIONS!
