Griffiths-Scott Sports

 

The leaves are changing colour as autumn comes to town. The flowers are dying off and the geese are heading south. All these things are a sign that winter is approaching us very quickly. Soon there will be a layer of white fluffy snow, but at least the cross country runners are finished for the year without any snow to slow them down.
                 
                 The last cross country run was a little harder because there were lots of really strong runners from other schools there. Griffiths-Scott had two runners place in the top ten in the last run. Bethany Buffalo came in first place. She had an outstanding run. Scott Monahan got tenth place out of over sixty students, so he also did a great job and had a very powerful run.
Millet School also had some great runners. Dylan Dreger came in with a fast finish and got fifth place and Tru Johnannesson came in tenth place, great running. The cross country runs are done for the year and everyone tried there hardest and made a fantastic effort. Can’t wait to see the turn outs next year.
                
Millet School held a Terry Fox run on September 27, 2012 and  raised a tremendous amount of money for it. They raised $700 and that is a lot of money for just one school. Griffiths-Scott is making scare crows for community in bloom. They are collecting old shoes and hats for the homeless. Doing things for unfortunate people, raising money for charities and giving to other people is a great way to show you care not just about yourself, but the world as a whole. Both of our schools do a lot of fundraising and that gives Millet a good reputation. 
 
Our gym in Griffiths-Scott has not yet been finished, but will be done very soon. Griffiths-Scott is hoping it will be done by October 17 but if not then it will be done by October 23, 2012 for sure. Since our gym at Griffiths- Scott School is not done, volleyball players have been using the Millet School gym to practice. The Griffins thank Millet School for allowing them to use their gym for the time being. 
 
The girls senior volleyball team won 3 out of 6 games in there last game, and the boys senior team won 1 out of six games in their last game. They all tried really hard and you have to remember it is only the start of the season. There are still lots of games to win. Girls junior volleyball team has not yet had a second game. Their second game is on October 2, 2012. I bet we will see some great turnouts from them too. 
                 
                 Cross country may be over but volleyball isn’t and it is quite a ways from being over too. There are still many games to be played and lots of skills still yet to be shown.
