Several years ago, Mark Phillips, physical education teacher at Mead’s Evergreen Elementary school, discovered a unique way to get kids active. Think Robin Hood and William Tell. That’s right; Phillips introduced archery to his fifth- and sixth-grade students. He’d heard about the National Archery in the Schools Program and was intrigued. “Archery is one of those things that every single kid can participate in,” said Phillips. … Students enthusiastically embraced the program and Phillips soon formed an after-school archery team. On March 20, the Evergreen Mustangs won first place in the elementary division in the statewide competition/Cindy Hval, Washington Voices. More here. (SR file photo for illustration: Jesse Tinsley)
