Volleyball

  • Yesterday, the 7th grade Girls Volleyball "A" team traveled to Fremont to play in our tournament.  The good news is that we played some of our best volleyball this season, but the not so good news is that Daniel Wright was able to take the overall win, despite the fact that we pushed them by winning game two after losing a close game one. So then our season all came down to a decisive game three! Once again, it went back and forth, but Daniel Wright was able to pull away with the win. Our "A" season may have ended sooner than we wanted it to, but the work, learning, progress, and fun that we had together cannot be measured by wins or losses. Nice work by all team members all season long for a very enjoyable season... Brooke, Nicole, Sammie, Anastasia, Abby, Hadley, Marlee, Alysa, Madison, Talia... and Max for the help at home games at the scoring table. Please wash/clean your uniform top and bring it to your coach ASAP!

 

  • The 7th grade B volleyball team fell in the tournament to a motivated Daniel Wright team last night. Though we would have liked to win the whole tournament, the girls should be very proud of getting the #1 seed! Mr. Williams is very proud of how hard each and every girl worked to improve throughout the year! Thank you to Arshitha, Amogha, Akshitha, Praneetha, Anna, Sarah, Karsen, Jordyn, Mia, Paula, Alexandra, and Reagan! Go Colts!

 

  • Despite losing in the first round to Daniel Wright, the 8th grade A team continued to improve from the beginning of the season. Please return your jerseys to Mr. Leven or Mr. Cummings by tomorrow.

 

  • Congratulations to Veronka, Hannah, Elanor, Lindsay, Maria, Eliana, Jasmine, Alessia, Chloe and Kendall on a great season finishing in 2nd place in the Conference volleyball tournament!

Student Safety at Pick Up and Drop Off

Attention Students: Your safety is very important to everyone. We would like to remind everyone to practice caution when getting out of the car when coming to school and getting into the car when leaving school. We are asking that students wait until their ride has pulled up on the curb closest to the school to get out of the car. The same goes for dismissal. Please wait until your ride is at the curb closest to the school. We do not want students running across the parking lot to get to their rides.

WE ARE TWIN GROVES!
WE ARE RESPONSIBLE, ACCOUNTABLE, RESPECTFUL, SAFE AND A COMMUNITY!
