Despite a valiant effort, faculty and staff members, ultimately, did not have what it took to beat the grade 8 varsity boys and girls volleyball teams during this year’s staff versus student game, held in early April. The students emerged victorious with a score of 48-33.
Amid a cheering crowd of spectators, the grade 8 girls then grade 8 boys played spectacularly – crushing all hope of a faculty free-dress day. Thanks to their win, the entire middle school student body enjoyed a free-dress day on May 1, while faculty and staff wore the required middle school uniform.
“It was a sad day in Mudville for the teachers and staff, but a happy day in the middle school for students!” said Cindy Ellis, middle school division head. “Congratulations to the Harker varsity volleyball teams. And thanks to great half-time entertainment from High Voltage and Show Stoppers.”
