Reshma Saujani, the mastermind behind the program and author of the book Girls Who Code, spoke to the group about the importance of technology and how to solve problems in our day-to-day lives.  She explained that this field is growing with limitless possibilities, but many girls do not realize their potential in this area.

Lance talked about his books, the plot, the characters, the villains, and much more.

YOGA!!!!  Yoga is a fun way to help your body relax and calm down.  It is also a great workout!  Many students in our junior high school get a small taste of what yoga is like in Coach Johnson's Body Conditioning class.  Once they’ve been introduced to this form of working out, many enjoy it! 

Yoga will also help with one’s flexibility and many other aspects of their athletic careers.
