Middle school athletics will begin Sept. 7

While high school athletics begin in August, middle school athletics will not begin until Wednesday, Sept. 7.

All middle school students (6th-8th grade) should participate on their middle school teams if that sport is offered at the middle school level. Parents of students who are planning to try out for a high school team in a sport that is also offered at the junior high should contact the head varsity coach directly.

Metcalf students create blankets for children in need

When some students in Laurie King’s Family and Consumer Science class at Metcalf Junior High in Burnsville finished their sewing assignments, they took on another project. They created tied blankets to donate to Project Linus, a nationwide organization that collects and distributes blankets to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere a child might need comfort.
