March 31st - April 7th, 2022

If you’ve never played basketball for Mr. Skazinski, you probably don’t know what it’s like to be in his team huddle. Here’s a special window into Coach Skazinski’s world: 

“In sports, there is a saying that a game was a “tale of two halves,” which usually means a team had an epic second half, defied all odds, and came away victorious.  We have officially entered the fourth quarter and the final stretch of the second half of the school year, and I would dare say this school year has been a “tale of two halves.”  Wouldn't you agree?

So, let’s attack the fourth quarter with a renewed spirit and finish the year with excellence, while keeping a focus on Christ and spreading HIS name!”
