On Monday the school started a new program called the Drayton Extended School Day Project. It is led by Rachel Lee and with the help of volunteers. The purpose of the Extended School Day Project is to keep kids safe and engaged in learning when otherwise could be unattended at home. For the Extended School Day Project kids can come in the morning before school to finish up on homework and can come after school for recreation, snacks, and educational learning. Occasionally the group will about the program. We had a great volleyball game in Drayton last week against Cavalier!We onlyhave one home volleyball game here in Drayton this year and that was last Tuesday. The night started out with the seventh graders playing. Our team won that game. After that was the eighth grade game, which we also won! Next the C-squad and junior varsity both lost. To end the night the varsity went into a fifth match and barely won in a very close game! It was a fun night to watch! Canyoubelieve it is alreadv the first week in Octooer. .? Summer sure came and and hang up all of the fun clothes, because before we know it there will be snow on the ground and we will be all bundled up and be able to see our breath outside as we breathe! Although not many people are very fond of the colder, winter and fall months; life still goes on and we just have got to embrace it. That is unless you are one of those smart folks that owns a winter house in Arizona, then you're living the dream! Thanks for reading our column, we hope you have a great week, and you can email us anything at laikentaylor.
