Poly Drivers – Talent show shines

A packed house enjoyed the many talents of Poly Drive students during the Talent Show on Feb. 27 at Lewis and Clark Middle School. Following a dinner catered by Poly Food Basket and homemade cookies, families enjoyed student artwork displays. The hard work of many Poly Drive teachers, staff, PTA members and former students, as well as community support from Rimrock Foundation and Shane Fairbanks, made for a memorable evening.

The  “Poly Drive Playground Patrol,” also known as the Playground Committee, is on the move to improve Poly Drive’s playground. Mrs. Reas has spearheaded the group that includes a large number of fifth graders to provide feedback about which equipment would best create an outside environment to promote fitness and health for all of our students.
