The Dance Module has come to an end culminating in group presentations of creative dance projects! It
was a fun module with lots of learning and activity! Next up is back to regular modular work, with
students choosing between Basketball, Table Tennis and Indoor/Outdoor Games as their next Module
Choice. Basketball will be offered a second time following the winter break!
Volleyball season has culminated with another extremely outstanding and successful season for Sansom
Volleyball! The Junior Girls, Junior Boys and Senior Boys teams all brought home Division
