Last week we held our 2nd annual Lunch Time Hula Hoop Contest.  Sixteen competitors started at the beginning of lunch and fifteen minutes later there were only two left.  They held a tie breaker with two hoops each.  Five minutes later Jack D.(1st) was champion!

Our intramural sports will continue in January with a school wide soccer tournament.  Also in 2018 we start our busy interscholastic sports season against other schools.  A soccer game is in the works along with a full schedule of basketball games.  During the spring we will play volleyball.  All fifth through eighth graders are eligible to participate.  More information will also be sent out regarding the schedules.  If you are interested in participating or helping out in any way please contact Mr. Crabtree at ccrabtree@saklan.org.  Thank you.
Let’s Go Saklan!
