Every year at Prairie View School, students begin walking. They walk starting after New Year’s Day and go until St. Patrick’s Day.
Greg Jensen, Prairie View Principal said, “The students set a goal of 400 miles this year. As of March 7, we are at 585, so we have gone way past our goal.”
The students seem to enjoy getting outdoors and Jensen said, “The students are very excited and are very driven this year. They are able to walk during their lunch and afternoon recesses.”
Golf season for the Cowboy and cowgirl teams was set to get off the tee-box on Friday, however, Mother Nature had a little to say about that.
The meet, to be held at the Marias Valley Golf and Country Club, had a white blanket and near freezing temperatures which cancelled the event.
That leaves the varsity team with no competitive matches as they go to Missoula for a two-day meet, where they played the Larchmont Golf Course and Missoula Country Club.
Even though it is early in the season, the Missoula meet is a big match up of teams, which the home players may face at the state meet in May.
Two of four men from Shelby have been charged in the vandalism case at the new state-of-the-art rest stop just off of I-15.
