Pizza Party/Swim Night for High school Volleyball and Football Teams

Dear Parents,

We are planning on having a  on August 12th, for the high school volleyball and football teams. This will be held at the Hay Springs pool from 6-9 pm and will cost each athlete $2 in order to attend. This covers the entrance fee for the pool. Pizza and drinks will be provided for the athletes. We will also have Chadron State women’s basketball coach, Janet Raymer, as a motivational speaker. The students who attended the Human Performance Project Camp this summer will also be sharing information concerning their experience. Chaperones for Friday night will be Trisha Kudrna, Josh Borm, Nichole Sherburne, and Kerisa Marx.

Creative Kiddos Summer Camp

This summer camp is over for the year. We, once again, had a blast with our Creative Kiddos. They have made watercolor paints, watching it fizz as we mix vinegar and baking soda, and marveling over the strange consistency of the mixture, both liquid and solid at the same time. They mixed primary colors, learning how to make a rainbow of colors for their paints with only three colors to start with.

We made silly putty, enjoying getting our hands all gooey until it suddenly turned firm and dry. Once again mixing colors, both in the process of making and in combining everyones finished products.

We have painted with frozen paint, milk and chalk, tape and even regular old paint. The week is finished but we had a great time and hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer.
