EHS Cross Country Update Dashaun Dodson sets EHS Cross Country record!! The Elsberry running Indians were in Kingdom City on October 1 for the North Callaway Invitational. The weather was beautiful, and the pace was blistering over the 3.1 mile course. Every EHS runner set a personal record and earned a medal. In the varsity boys division, Dashaun Dodson ran the fastest time ever recorded by an EHS cross country runner, finishing second in 17:11:58. All eyes were on the finish line as Dodson ran shoulder-to-shoulder with rival Sam Northcutt of Mark Twain. At the end, it was Dodson in front by three-tenths of a second. The runners will likely face each other again on the same course in two weeks at the EMO conference meet. We just might see a new school record then. Also in boys varsity competition, Jedidiah Heras ran in tenth place (18:09:92) and Nolan Wilson finished eleventh (18:10:73). Ellie Hartley ran a brisk 21:08:16 to finish second in the girls varsity race. Dodson, Wilson, Heras, and Hartley have taken their place among the elite runners in the area. In junior varsity girls competition, Chloe Howard won the girls race with training partner, Ali Hausgen finishing third. Noah Hausgen ran in third place in the boys JV race.
Congrats Elsberry FFA trap A Team!

After reading the essay, "Man in the Water" by Roger Rosenblatt, sophomores in Mrs. Dormire's English 2 class answered questions and shared their ideas in a socratic seminar. The goal is to have students actively listen and respond to their peers, learn responsibility and accountability as they prepare for each seminar, and to maintain ownership of their learning.
