Sacred Heart students go for the gold

Students and staff at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Shawano held their own closing ceremonies Monday to wrap up a Winter Olympics physical education unit.

Under the guidance of physical education teacher Sue Kenfield, students had the opportunity to participate in modified versions of several Olympic sports, including curling, speed skating, luge, hockey, ski jumping and biathlon, while also learning about the importance of team spirit, sportsmanship, kindness, honesty and hard work.

Some Sacred Heart students were awarded medals for their efforts on Monday, which was also a special pajama day to kick off Read Across America Week 2018. All students were applauded, just the like real Olympians in South Korea, for giving their best effort.
