Sunset Elementary uses international games to bring home math, physical education

Aaron Colby set his face in a resolute grimace Monday as he trotted through the Sunset Elementary School gym, a torch clutched in his determined hands.

Aaron didn’t waver as he carried the torch dutifully to Moffat County High School track athletes, who would run it around the gym before the finale.
