Last year, as a freshman, Charlie set an all-time high school goal for himself to run a sub-10:00 3200 meter race(a feat that no Olympia athlete has done in the last 30+ years). Last Friday night, Charlie smashed that goal, running 9:53.96. He has now set his sights on a new goal....the 46 year old 3200 meter record held by Les Meyers at 9:16.8.

Encouraging students to take their fruits and vegetables can be a challenge on the elementary level. It is our goal in all the elementary cafeterias that the students will try new foods and learn to love them. Some fun in lunch can go a long way to help promote the fruits and vegetables we have available for the students to choose from. At North our Watermelon Man did just that.​
