Excelling at Track

Murray fifth grader Elizabeth Dominguez won the silver medal in the long jump, while Murray third grader Angelina Martinez captured the bronze medal in the mini turbo javelin throw. Foothill Middle School seventh grader Alyssa Martinez won the bronze medal in both the javelin throw and the shot put.
Cadets Learn Mapping Skills
Gladstone High School JROTC cadets recently participated in map reading training at Bonelli Park in San Dimas. The purpose of this exercise was to allow cadets the opportunity to find their way from one point to another using compasses, terrain features, and topographic symbols on carefully marked maps. Pictured are cadets Aaron Natividad, Jasmin Quezada and Nathan Ford.
