Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful break and were able to relax and recover. It is nice to recharge as we begin a new year and a new semester.
I am excited to announce that Gus Aguirre has been named the new head coach for high school girls soccer. We are pleased to have him join our staff and coach the girls soccer program. We will be having a meet and greet for girl soccer players and parents on Monday January 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the library.
To girls basketball who finished as runner-ups at the Arvada Girls Basketball Tournament right before Christmas Break. Also congrats to Katelyn Dick who was named to the all tournament team.
Connor Clancy who has been selected as a member of the All-Area Tennis Team by the Coloradoan.
Hannah Ellis and Cody Jones who were selected as members of the All-Area Cross Country Team by the Coloradan.
These three kids will be invited to the Northern Colorado Sports Awards Show in May hosted by the Coloradoan. The guest speaker this year will be Denver Broncos Von Miller. This is a great honor for all athletes, as it involves looking at athletes for 24 schools in their respective sport.
As we enter the middle of January we enter the heart of basketball season and league play. We hope you all can make it out and cheer on our Wolverines. Your positive support for our teams is important.
Video of the Week:
Over break this video seemed to be circulating the internet to point of almost being viral. Falling into the millennial generation the video struck home with me. I believe this is a great video that both parents and students could find benefit in and be a conversation starter. How we grew up is quite a bit different than how our current students have grown up, in particular the amount of technology that surrounds students now. I believe Simon Sinek made some valid points on the positives and negatives of too much technology. What hit home with me is being more intentional about relationships and less focused on technology. I believe it was a great video to start the year and coming up with goals to accomplish being more intentional about relationships in 2017.
Thanks for reading. Go Wolverines!
