Spirited Volleyball Games in LS

We don't think anything in the Lower School has caused as much excitement as a recent Volleyball tournament where the teachers played the students in each grade level. The students came ready to cheer with handmade signs and prepared chants. The noise practically blew the roof off the gym!

The activity was organized by PE teacher Craig Pinson who wanted to give his students the chance to show off the volleyball skills they had learned in class.  The tournament offered split results, with the students winning some matches and the teachers eeking out a win some of the time.
