SGS 10th grader John DeForest has completed a week of racing at the Junior National Cross Country Ski Championship Meet in Anchorage.  While he did not medal, the Pacific Northwest team won the Small-Team Alaska Cup award for most points accumulated by a team of 36 people or fewer. The Pacific Northwest Nordic Association, one of ten teams from all over the country, sent 36 skiers to the competition.  John was one of four skiers from the Spokane Nordic team who competed.  Good work, John!

Students in grades 5-7 have an adventurous opportunity to learn more about the SGS Outdoor Program by going on an overnight to Steamboat Rock State Park Campground on May 4-5.  Melanie Mildrew, Director of Outdoor and Community Service Programs, will be chaperoning the trip along with Rick Petrini and Jim Tuck.  This trip can accommodate up to 15 students, so if you are interested, please sign up ASAP by signing the waiver form on PowerSchool.  The cost of the trip is $50.00 per person, which includes transportation, food, and campground fees.  See the Flyer for Details.

Saint George's has signed up to staff a water station at Bloomsday on Sunday, May 5.  For those of you not running or walking the race, this is a fun way to be involved with your school and the community.  We need at least 150 volunteers to handle two shifts that day:  7am-10am and 10am-1pm.  Many jobs are available: shift captains, set up, clean up, table captains, t-shirt organizer, and volunteers to hand out water and cheer on the runners.  If you are interested in volunteering at the SGS Bloomsday Water Station, please contact Russell Werkman.

SGS 10th grader John DeForest is competing at the Junior National Cross Country Ski Championships this week (March 10-15) in Anchorage, Alaska.  He goes to the competition ranked 7th among 15- and 16-year olds in the Pacific Northwest Region.  John, whose first ski coach was former SGS math teacher Judson Ford, qualified for the meet over the course of five races in Washington, Oregon, and Utah this winter.  He races both classic style (skis parallel to each other) and freestyle (like skating).  The competition includes both sprints and distance races up to 5 km.  Go John!
