Griffiths-Scott Middle School News

Pipestone Flyer

    With the last burst of snow here, spring is finally setting in. Snow is melting as the temperature rises. The change of seasons is also the change of semesters at Griffiths- Scott School. The new season was also greeted in with the spring play.

     The third and final semester has started. All students got their new options and report cards. Now that the final semester has come students are getting excited for summer with it only being two months away, but spring break comes first. This is the last week of school before Griffiths- Scott gets their break. This break is not only exciting for the students but also the teachers, in fact they are the ones that deserve it the most.

    Congratulations to the cast of the school play. The play was a great success, it was entertaining to watch. All the students did a great job by memorizing their lines and staying in character even under all the pressure. After it all came to an end and final bows were over, Ms. Gregg, the teacher behind the whole thing, was called up for the round of applause she deserved and was also awarded with some flowers from the cast.

    The badminton tournaments are only a few weeks away and Griffin's are practicing to take home a win. With four practices a week, our school is hoping for at least one gold. If we don't take home a win we will know we at least tried our hardest with having the amount of practices we have.

    With the excitement of spring break here and the excitement that is building in us for summer, I think it is safe to say these last two months and going to go by faster than we think.
