Looking forward to seeing students and their families at I Love to Read Night at Belle Elementary!
Yesterday morning we competed in Linn. This is a big meet with over 100 runners in some races and the competition is most definitely there! Our kids walked away with 5 medals. All of them getting under 20th place! Our boys varsity team took 6th (which is also awesome!). We have some very exciting things with XC and I can't wait to see what the rest of the season holds. Next meet is a MS meet in Bourbon Tuesday, and MS/HS on Thursday in Steelville! September 21st is our home meet in Belle @ 4 at the park! We would love to have your support!
