Photo by: Rebecca J MarohlTechnical High School This photo is a student of mine from Journey, that comes over to Tech once per week to join in on swimming for adaptive phy-ed. His favorite thing to do each week is jumping off the diving board over and over.

He swims to the side of the pool, gets out, and does it over again.Title: Apollo Swimming Photo by: Elise MorrelApollo High School This is the picture of our 4 girls who placed 8th at Sections in the 200 Free Relay.

The Mock Crash was coordinated by members of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), which recently re-formed at Tech. Due to weather, the outside portion of the crash had to be canceled, but the presentations still happened in the gym. Several guest speakers spoke to the students about the dangers of distracted driving. Two SADD members (front row) acted as victims of a crash that were injured due to distracted driving. The next day, SADD members distributed Cellslips to students at Tech who were willing to sign a Distracted Driving Pledge. This was a great example of community partnerships and having to be flexible and resilient when something doesn't always go according to plan!Title: Gabriel's 1st 100 Fly Photo by: Alexandra BadgerApollo High School Gabriel was a Senior on our swim team who also happened to be on the autism spectrum.
