On Tuesday, May 26th all students participated in the Marie Murphy Olympics. Thank goodness the rain held out until the event was over! Ten teams comprised of 6th, 7th and 8th graders competed against one another. Team #5 came in 1st place under the leadership of Mrs. Lane, Mr. Minsley and Ms. Stewart. Team #1 took 2nd place under the direction of Mrs. Cunningham, Mrs. Hoffmeister and Mr. Howe. Third place was clinched by Team #2 with guidance from Mrs. Roche, Mrs. Rose-Epstein and Mr. Furman.
