gretchenmedalsThird grader Gretchen House recently became a state champion in gymnastics.

Gretchen competes as part of the USA Gymnastics Excel Program at the platinum level. This year she won first in the all-around, first on beam, first on vault, first on the floor, and second on bars.

Gretchen has been training since she was two years old. She has had to do a lot of traveling and put in a lot of hard work after school to accomplish her goals.

Summer is a great time for students to catch up on reading or explore nature, but for students looking for something a bit more structured–and something they can put on scholarship applications senior year–getting involved in extensive community service or attending camps and conferences can be a great opportunity.

track

Weather permitting, the high school and junior high track teams will compete four nights this week. The Chadwick track program has experienced a lot of success this year already and they are enjoying increased community support.

The spring fundraiser was a great success. The money raised will help pay for warm-ups, uniforms, and equipment for the team.  Coach Jenny Gardner said, “On behalf of the whole team, I really want to thank Circle L Designs for the design and production of our Cardinal gear, Jessi Little for helping coordinate the fundraiser, and everyone who supported us through making purchases.”

In addition to financial support, the team welcomes support on the field and encourages fans to come out and show their Cardinal Pride at local track and field events.
