Congratulations to the students who participated on the Bell Pentathlon team and to Mrs. Houchen. Our students dominated the competition, bringing home 68 medals.

Both our 7th and 8th grade teams won 1st place over-all, which is an amazing accomplishment considering there were 77 schools in the competition. We are so proud of our students and Mrs. Houchen. Well Done!
