The best people to tell you what to expect in a new school are the ones who were enrolled there most recently.

An activities fair Tuesday afternoon at Craig Middle School gave eighth-grade students a glimpse of all the opportunities that will be available to them this coming fall as they matriculate as freshmen at Moffat County High School.

This included a greater variety of sports — such as golf and swimming — more academic variety — such as foreign languages — and plenty of extracurricular activities, including FFA, Knowledge Bowl and many others.

This gave CMS students the chance to confirm they wanted to sign up for something next school year or just find out more about something entirely new.

Eighth-graders Spencer Brown and Ty Pinnt both agreed they each wanted to join the rodeo, wrestling and track teams but also looked into the Culinary Arts booth.

“I want to learn more about what they do in that class, like do you work on your own or do you work with a group,” Pinnt said.

The free cookies at the table also helped attract some potential interest. Each of the groups offered something unique to those inquiring.

For the members of the Global Ozone Project (GO3), being involved with CMS makes sense, since much of their equipment already is located at the middle school. Younger students need to learn how to read the scientific data involved in the project, but it’s nothing they can’t learn easily.

“We really want to start working with one of them,” junior Treann Quick said.
