Student Shout Outs
WORD MASTERS SUCCESS: Congratulations to the MTMS 7th Grade students that participated in the recent Word Masters challenge. Twain as a school placed 8th in the nation during Round #1. Shout out to all of the students that participated and to Ms. Bennett, their English teacher, that led them in this competition.
ELLIPTICAL EXPERIENCE: Cross Country ELT students were visited Thursday by Jeff Caron, high school state champion, former collegiate runner at University of Maine and professional runner and now East Coast ElliptiGO rep. Jeff spoke to the students about the progression of his running career from high school to college to the pros and spoke about the ElliptiGO – an outdoor elliptical bike and great cross-training activity for runners. Students rode the stationary ElliptiGO indoor trainers and were able to experience “running without impact.”
