One middle school student at St. Anthony School in Tigard has been working hard at gymnastics. Spencer Goodell traveled to Colorado to participate in a Future Stars Meet at the Olympic Training Center. He placed 13th overall, which qualifies him to make the Olympic Development Team.

Meanwhile, Christmas at St. Anthony involved all students. Music teacher Jeanne Havlik directed a pageant titled “The Wonders of Christmas.” Agnes Zueger accompanied singers on piano. Eighth graders took speaking parts as did students playing the Nativity characters. The three wise men, complete with new costumes, sang. The annual Christmas program is intended to teach the students about the true meaning of Christmas and as a Christmas gift for parents.
