Put-in-Bay School students delivered a superb holiday concert, under the direction of Ms. Gay Pippert, Music Director, on Thursday evening. Grades Kindergarten through eight performed twelve selections, including a traditional arrangement featuring flute and alto recorder. Creative costumes and synchronized movements added depth to clear and harmonic voices. Patrick Myers added brilliant, multi-colored stage lighting. Click an image for enlarged view!
Put-in-Bay senior citizens received colorful holiday bags with a cornucopia of treats from the local Girl Scouts. Assorted fresh fruits, delicate cookies, Heineman’s Concord Grape Juice, and special treats from Put-in-Bay’s Candy Bar were hand-delivered over the weekend. Each gift included a hand-made holiday greeting from students at Put-in-Bay School. The generous and thoughtful packages are a perfect example of kindness extended by the Girl Scouts all year!
Put-in-Bay Basketball continued the 2018-19 season on Saturday with the first set of home games at the Jim Poulos Recreation Center. The early game featured the Put-in-Bay School All-Stars competing in a friendly round versus the Ottawa Hills Green Bears fifth-graders. The Panther Boys took on the Green Bears ninth graders with the unfortunate result being a 40-19 loss.
The Panther Girls, fresh off a first place finish at the Great Lakes Island Schools Competition on Beaver Island, boosted their record to 6-0 with a nail-biter game against the Temple Christian girls. Scoring went down to the wire, with incredible shooting by both teams. The final score was 51-55. Put-in-Bay School Cheerleaders and Lil-Dancers did a superb job of energizing the full-house audience. WPIB radio broadcaster Patrick Meyers called the game with attention-getting enthusiasm!
Away games for the coming week, but the Panthers return to the home floor on Saturday, 15 December 2018.
