Elphi grads host sports camp
Twenty-two elementary school students spent a happy and active day on the Feb. 8 Pro-D day at Elphi’s sports camp.
Fourteen Grade 12 students volunteered their time to provide a great overview of fundamental skills and various sports in volleyball, basketball, soccer and dance.
Parent supervisor Ginny Blattler couldn’t have been more proud of the grads instilling inspiration, teamwork and good sportsmanship to the young campers.
At the end of the day, the young campers were shouting to the grads to have more sports camps for the next Pro-D day. They might just get what they asked for.
