It’s a game of the dueling Secondary Principals in Adrian and Archie! Who can improve test scores the most? Adrian Principal Don Lile says it is his students, and Archie Principal Jeff Kramers says it is his! The school with the highest increase on End-of-Course exams will be a part of something that has never been done before. The winning principal will set-up an “office” for the principal of the opposing school…on the roof! Dressed in the arch rival’s school colors, the principal of the opposing school will spend an entire school day on the roof.
Adrian students, 5th through 8th grades, competed in the Sherwood Math Contest Tuesday, March 18. Teachers attending were Matt Cochran, Erin Huckaby and Jeannie Erwin. Team results were: 5th grade, 1st; 6th grade, 2nd; 7th grade, 2nd; 8th grade, 1st; 5th-8th Teams, 1st.
See the April 10 issue of The Adrian Journal for individual results.
The Adrian Blackhawks girls and boys track teams traveled to Archie Monday, March 31. Both teams brought home 1st place finishes.
Girls Coach Basore commented, “We ran well on the track and also had some girls earn more points in the field events. Good team effort to win the meet. We had the opportunity to see the areas that we need to improve on and hopefully we can take care of those issues over the next couple of days so we are ready for our meet at Adrian.”
Thursday, April 3, Adrian hosted 14 teams. Again, both the boys and girls placed 1st.
