Last Friday during lunch, Saklan held its first known Hula-Hoop Contest. The contest was inspired by Camp Saklan which held a similar event during the summer. Twenty-three adults and students signed-up for the competition. After twenty minutes of hooping, there were five contestants left. Gracee (5th), Leo (5th), Makenna (4th), Meera (5th), and Will (5th) all participated in a championship round where they had to keep two hoops moving around their waists.
In the end, Will (5th) was the last one still hula-hooping. Congratulations to Will and all other competitors! This fun activity will take place again in the future so start practicing.
Also in the news, there will be a cross-country race for fifth thru eighth graders on November 8th. This race involves other schools and will take place at the Lafayette Reservoir. The course will be 2.8 miles and racers will start running at 4:10 pm. All foot racers please inquire with Mr. Crabtree if interested.
Let’s go Saklan!
