This week was the “Wide World of Sports” at Stephen S. Wise Elementary School. We had a few exciting days filled with basketball and football playoff games. Our sixth grade boys’ blue football team played an intense elimination game on Monday as a playoff qualifying round. The boys were strong both on offense and defense, and played with all of their heart and energy, but were not able to advance. In girls’ basketball, our sixth grade blue team and green team both had outstanding games this Wednesday, where they won the championship for the San Fernando Valley Private School League! Our other two sixth grade girls’ basketball teams made it into the competitive playoffs.
Beyond the trophies that we brought home yesterday, the feeling of accomplishment, teamwork, and athleticism were true gifts to our students. The kids showed good character and sportsmanship, as well as perseverance as they pushed through some great challenges. We continue to be proud of how well our students represent our school both on and off the field – our values in action as we “Celebrate what’s right!”
