Reanissance Faire Activities at Commons Today!

Today we held a Renaissance Faire Fashion Show. The students were our models, one student even modeled a kilt. It was great fun! Next week at Commons, we will have a powerpoint and demonstration for the dessert auction. We will also have the students start selling raffle tickets and give them fliers to be put up around town.

The students wanted to know if they could get together at school and create costumes. Christine Craig the lady who did the fashion show said she and her friend said they would be willing to come down with their sewing machines on Thurs. April 8th and help the students alter clothes they bring. If anyone is willing to help with the sewing, please let Sally know.( We will be passing around a sign up sheet for those interested at Commons on Friday April 2nd.
Things are going foward! Thanks everyone who has put in a lot of time and effort so far. This is going to be a huge deal! We can't wait to see how it all turns out! Start spreading the news. May 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lindon City Park.

Maeser Tennis Team Tournament with Grand High School, Moab, Utah

The Maeser Young Men's Tennis Team played its first tournament of the season against Grand High School in Moab, Utah this past weekend, March 12-13.

The pre-season match was arranged by Maeser Tennis Coach Samila Nickell and Coach Ed (pictured to the right), the Grand High School Tennis Coach.

 For the most part, the two teams were evenly paired, with multiple matches going into a tie breaker. Good sportsmanship was emphasized and practiced well by both teams. In the photo to the left, Ryan Griffith returns a volley during his match.

The tournament consisted of a three hour session Friday afternoon and a Saturday morning session of equal length.  The photo to the right shows the pre-tournament greeting of the two teams. Here, pairings were assigned and tournament logistics were discussed.

 Following the Saturday morning matches, the Maeser team enjoyed lunch at Wendys followed by a quick stop at the Moab Rock Shop, an eclectic collection of Moab memorabilia, gems, petrified wood, and old dinosaur bones.

On the way home, the team stopped for about an hour hike in Arches National Park. The boys enjoyed hiking around three arches in the Windows section of the park.

Many thanks to Coach Samila Nickell and Coach Deanna Pilling for the time and effort they put into developing our young men.
