Each year our 8th graders take part in Farm Bureau’s Essay Contest. This year the theme involved writing about a hero in their lives. Congratulations to Natalie Endres, Bri Haarer and Audrey Morris for placing in this year’s competition. Bri’s essay (pictured in the middle) will move on to the next level where she will compete against other 8th graders in Michigan! Natalie Endres (pictured on left) also is St. Gerard School’s winner in the National Geographic Geography Bee. Natalie will travel to Mt. Pleasant in the next few weeks to compete on a state level as well. Such talented, hard working students!
