Yesterday, the students in 7th and 8th grade Health / Physical Education got a special visit from Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games in order to introduce them to the end of the year Physical Education Challenge.  The students will take part in several challenges in an obstacle course that is tied to the book, The Hunger Games.
