Sweeping into the New Year
Sports are a big part of growing up, giving many kids something to be passionate about. Before the Christmas break we said goodbye to football, and volleyball and welcomed curling and hockey with open arms. This year our junior curling teams are giving it their all. There are 9 players who have a lot of excitement to play and compete. Justin Harcourt, Brynn Harcourt, Devdan Chegus, Kiera Anderson, and Kaley Ingram travel to Humboldt to play in their league Tuesday’s afterschool. They are proudly undefeated, winning 5 games, and tying 2. This puts them 2nd in the league. Both the mixed team and the girl’s team, Kiera Anderson, Madison Rudick, Kadence Gabriel, Reilly Sunderland, and Aurora Benjamin play Thursday’s in Wadena. Practices are Monday after school, making their week consist of curling almost every day. They love to curl and learn the strategies, never once complaining about their busy schedule.

QLS Camouflaged
As part of the SRC, I can say that getting students actively involved in all of our activities and spirit days is harder than one would imagine. Everyone jumps for joy for hot lunches, and fun presenters, but actually putting effort into dressing up seems to be hard work for most. This month, we tried our hardest to pick a day that everyone could dress up for, even the boys! Constant texts and reminders at school were being sent out weeks before, not letting anyone forget dress up in orange, camo, or even as a deer if you don’t have anything else. Hunting Day on January 14th filled the hallways with orange t-shirts, and camo sweaters, and a few small deer prancing from class to class. We were happy to see that even the senior boys took the extra time in the morning to dig in their closets to find their seasonal hunting gear. The fun spirit day was accompanied by a hunting game in the gym. At noon, all grades snapped rubber bands from their fingers, trying to shoot empty pop cans down. Kids raced the hallways to get first in line, eager to participate and win. Hunting Day will be a spirit day we have again, since it was such a success the first time.
