On Friday, the Calapooia Middle School Life Skills class carried and passed the Olympic Torch through the Calapooia hallways. Students from all classes lined up along the lockers to watch, cheer, and celebrate the beginning of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Calapooia’s Basecamp classes have all chosen a country participating in the games to closely follow over the next couple of weeks. Base Camp is part of the school’s CLIMB initiative to engage students and motivate them to overcome obstacles and reach goals. The program started in 2016.
