March Madness Baseball Tournament

I was so glad the tournament was in St. George because it was a lot warmer than it is here. Even though my team didn't do good I still had a lot of fun. I played catcher and center and did great at both. But when it came to batting, I just could not get it in my head that I have to swing to hit the ball and that outside pitches were strikes. And what is really making me angry is that my batting average is still .000 because every time I hit the ball I was either thrown out or it was a throwing error. Outside the games I had my own fun and I also learned a lot from my losses. I am glad my team went to that tournament. -Kyle

Big week for Austin

This was a big week for Austin. It started on Wednesday night when Austin was recognized by the Syracuse Community Council. He was recognized for his outstanding service to the community. For the past two years Austin tries to arrive at school before the buses show up so he can hold the door open for all of the students as they enter the school. And then on Friday we were invited to a breakfast at the school where Austin was again recognized, this time by one of his teachers as student of the month. We could not be more proud of Austin this year. He volunteers at the school store during lunch time and we hear nothing but good things from all of his teachers.
