The Celebrity Basketball Game was a event for all ages. It was the 2nd of March, and it was the 13th annual game. First there was the eighth grade boys vs. the eighth grade girls basketball. I interviewed one of the players/student that played in the game. Here is what he had to say, "It was really fun" and "we got buckets on em" that is what Andrew Mack thought about the Celebrity Basketball Game.The second exciting event was the middle school marching band and pride performers. Then there was the staff vs. celebrities basketball game which is always a fun filled, exciting for the crowd, and nail biting game.
Mr. Klasna hosts the game every year and plays in the game to help our staff to victory...maybe. Then for the half time show for the celeb vs. staff there was a college team the came in and had a DUNK CONTEST!!! How fun is that?
The roster for the staff included: Rob DiGiallonardo- 4th grade, Toni Bender-4th grade, Dylan Barnard- 5th grade, Kim Shanks-Elementary Special Education, Jerry Zilkoski Elementary Counselor, David Swecker Elementary PE, Jesse Swanke MS Math/Athletic Director, Cortney Metzler MS PE, Teresa Kauer MS PE, Gordon Klasna MS, Principal Kelly Kinsey MS Assistant Principal, Johnny Nielsen LW Football Coach, Brennan Nielsen LW Football Coach. With this roster it is bound to be a fun game.

Sixteen middle schoolers from Eileen Johnson Middle school competed in the Skyview High Math Counts competition. The competition followed this format: each competitor was given 3 tests, each test took thirty minutes to complete, and each test was taken in a different room. Tests were then scored. If you were in the rop 15% you would get a Superior rating. The next 30% got an Honorable Mention. Robert, a participant from Lockwood, said the thing that stood out the most was that, "there were a lot of people" competing. Hopefully this tradition continues for years to come.
