Eight Upper School students volunteered on Sunday, November 3 at the 2019 Special Olympics Spokane Bowling Competition at the north side Lilac Lanes. Jacob Schultheis, John Nowland, Nate Henning, Kade Kaiser, Paul Poole, Gabe Gustafson, Finn Kelly and Gibson Montgomery were each assigned to a lane where they helped the athletes as they bowled. They also helped make sure the system recorded the score accurately and that bowlers went in the right order. Then after bowling they transitioned to help out with the awards presentation. Good work, Dragons!

From taking the PSAT test to eating an Oktoberfest lunch to trying out a variety of stress relieving and community building activities, the Middle and Upper School students enjoyed a full day on Wed., Oct. 16. See a Video Overview of their day as well as photo galleries of taking the PSAT Exam, enjoying an Oktoberfest Lunch, their Community Day Outdoor Activities (capture the flag, walking and petting dogs, photo scavenger hunt, chalk drawings), their Quieter Activities (reading to Kindergarten students, practicing yoga, learning mindfulness techniques), and their Arts & Games Activities (face painting, painting kindness rocks, drawing, playing games).
