LET'S GET PHYSICAL! On Saturday, February 1st, grade physical education teacher, Janet Duffy-Brewer, took 6th grade students (and parents) to South Shores Park to compete in the Super Run 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk. Justin R. took home a medal and a prize for finishing first in the boys 12 and under age division in a time of 29:02 for the 3.1 mile course. Bryn B. also earned a meadal and a prize for finishing 2nd in the girls 12 and under age group in a time of 29:46. These two ran an average mile pace of 9:30 for three miles! Eli P. just missed winning a prize, but his time of 36:11 brought him in at 4th place. A SUPER shout out goes to Bryn's mom Marti, who finished 2nd in her age division. If this sounds like fun to you, read the weekly bulletin for future running events!
TEACHER OF THE YEAR Mrs. Holland teaches 7th & 8th grade Science. Her classroom is an amazing place where students are actively engaged in learning. It is typical to see students working together on scientific investigations while using technology to enrich the learning. It is no surprise that Mrs. Holland's colleagues just voted her Marston Middle School's TEACHER OF THE YEAR for 2013-2014. Congratulations, Mrs. Holland!
