We love getting positive notes; great work Miss Toaddy and Mrs.Tompkins! "I wanted to share my family’s experience with you from the weekend when we had an encounter with your XC team at Metamora’s DQ this past Saturday. After the race we headed to DQ for a quick lunch before heading home. After we sat down from ordering the “dreaded” sight happened – a school bus pulled in. It was your XC team. The thing that was different from the “other” buses that we have encountered over the years was that your team listened and paid attention to their coaches. Plus, your coaches weren’t doing their own thing once they got inside the building. They stayed attentive and aware of what was going on while we were there. They even talked about where to sit so they could keep their eyes on everyone. Your coach had them move their line a couple of different times to make things easier for the DQ staff and the other customers. No complaining from your kids. Not one. Were the kids loud? Sure, but what group of 40 junior high students isn’t going to be. Were they over the top disruptive? By no means what so ever! Being involved in a school district as a board member, I know it seems all we hear is the negative complaints about our staff and students. It sure was a pleasure to have lunch with your team and coaches on Saturday afternoon. Best of luck to your team the rest of the season." -L.K.
