They staff put up a good fight today but, ultimately, the varsity volleyball players dominated and took all three sets in the Staff vs. Students Volleyball Showdown! Thanks to all those who played, and much love to the three staff who "won" the Pie in the Face Raffle. Ms. Patterson, Mr. Cola, and Ms. Mitchell are some good sports!
