Whole School Basketball Tournament Champions
In order to allow all grade levels a chance to play again in the finals a randomizer was utilized to take 2 players from each grade level's champion team. This formed 3 new teams of six to participate in a single elimination bracket.

Oliver Bridges (6th) Tyler Diggs (6th) Kenneth Brooks (7th) Kennedy Mack (7th) James Spence (8th) & Kai White (8th) joined together to beat all other teams in the bracket 9-7; naming them the school champions for this spring tournament.

Congratulations to all players who participated in this event!

Whitemarsh Park, 100 White Marsh Park Dr, Bowie, MD 20715

May 21st, 2016, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

www.cityofbowie.org/weedwarriors

The City of Bowies Green Team is in need of volunteers to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily, and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level, then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them. To participate, please register by contacting Kristin Larson (klarson@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). This is a great Student Service Learning opportunity. Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or Troop Leader at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines. Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service learning hours for students at the event.
