Greetings to the Mullan Jr/Sr High students and parents!
The first quarter is already over, and we have been busy!
Football playoffs against Garden Valley took place Saturday afternoon. We are so proud of our Tigers and their success this year even though it did not end up the way we had hoped. Thanks to Steve Trogden and crew for plowing the field, marking the yard lines, and the numerous other things they do preparing the field for the football games. Special thanks, too, to Ashley Elliott for all the behind the scenes work she puts into student athletic events.
Volleyball is over, and our girls placed 2nd in the North Star League. Congratulations to Jazzmyn Nelson and Liberty Petit for All League awards. Our junior high volleyball and football teams worked hard all season and really improved, and our Tiger sports look strong for the future.
Basketball practice has started, so we’re literally off and running! However, we need more junior high athletes!! The amount of playing time and opportunity for improvement with a small team with one-on-one coaching really gives Mullan athletes an advantage. I encourage all junior high kids to sign up.
I want to give a special shout out to The Outlaw for adding an appetizer gift certificate to our Student of the Week award. We appreciate your continued support of our kids!! Six students so far have been recognized for their exemplary leadership and academic achievement since the beginning of the year.
The juniors and seniors attended a National College Fair at the Spokane Convention Center last week. Literally, hundreds of colleges had representatives available to talk to students and answer their questions about fields of study and financial aid. The colleges came from not only Idaho, Washington, and Montana, but also Arizona, New York, Pennsylvania, Alaska, and California (just to name a few), but also from as far away as New Zealand, England, and Japan. What a great opportunity for our students to look at post-secondary options they might not otherwise have considered!
