The winter isn't stopping Regioners! With all the fun things coming up this weekend, its clear that a little snow won't bother us. Check out what's going on!
The Sport of Smarts
At La Lumiere school, sports are encouraged for all students. However, for those not athletically inclined, there are other opportunities. During the winter season, there are two academically motivated after school activities: Science Olympiad and Academic Decathlon. These teams meet when the school day is over, and spend their time...studying. It might seem crazy, but students enjoy taking part in these activities, even with the extra work and thought required. On January 20, the Decathlon team competed at their regionals.

Finally, the counselor and showrunner, Mrs. Walden, asks the students to come onto the gym floor in front of the stage. This is it.
