Marking the end of the season, the Cross Country Championship Meet was held in Perry at the old Knowton campground.  Seventy students ran in each division, running on unfamiliar ground, as the Moosehorn was closed due to government shutdown.  Shayla LaRoche took 4th place out of 70 girls. Amuwes Dana came in 4th out of 70 boys.  The girls’ elementary team took 2nd place out of 10.  The junior high teams also did very well.  Donald Soctomah was 16th out of 70, and Jennah Neptune came in 12th.  Way to go Indian Township!  We are proud of your dedication and sportsmanship!

School staff met the school buses at a 1 mile mark and students got off the bus and walked the remainder of the way.  Another Walk-to- School day was planned on Tuesday.  This is just another example of how Indian Township is promoting a healthy lifestyle for kids.
