PANTHER BASKETBALL TEAMS ATTENDS TIMBERWOLVES GAME

Forty-two SCC girl and boy basketball players and coaches had the opportunity to attend the March 11th Timberwolves vs. Milwaukee Bucks professional basketball game at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. The Timberwolves offered SCC discounted group tickets as well as the opportunity to walk on the court after the game and to take a group picture. This experience provided our students and coaches an chance to watch basketball played at an advanced skill level. Everyone enjoyed spending time together in a positive atmosphere outside the school setting.  It was a great experience for Panther Athletics!

Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a program designed to promote a love of reading among our students.  It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books.  Each team of students (up to four members) reads from a list of 20 books and competes against other teams by answering questions asked in a battle. Each question is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of: “Name the book in which…”  Battle of the Books is a fun, academic-based   competition that has been very successful in school districts throughout the state in encouraging students to read.  New this year, students were able to twitter with an author. St. Croix Central “Battle of the Books” participants included:  Dana Queen, Claire Hueg, Katie Dennis and Andrew Loew.
