Last Saturday, my wife Cathryn and I attended the Bear Booster Annual Auction and Dinner. The event was impressive as always. It was packed with people having a great time and helping to support our students in their extra-curricular events. I haven’t heard how much money they made this year, but by the great donations provided by the community and the willingness of patrons to generously bid I’m sure they surpassed their goals.
Extra-curricular, or as I like to call it co-curricular, is a vital part of our educational program in the Moscow School District. Lessons are not always just learned in the classroom. Leadership, teamwork, cooperation, and grit are just a few of the skills and behaviors learned. We are proud of our athletics, arts, and other school organizations that make up our co-curricular activities throughout the grade levels. We especially like how the community supports these opportunities for students. Thank you and especially thanks to the Boosters and the patrons who helped support this year’s auction.
