Experts visit Grade 8 for Bridge Design Day

Today, students in the 8th grade received expert advice on their bridge building projects from engineers who specialize in bridge construction and design. Avonworth Middle School welcomed engineers from the Michael Baker International and  PennDot District 11. Students are working on a project in science class that requires them to design a sturdy yet cost effective bridge. Students will build their structures out of plastic drinking straws, hot glue, and fishing line. Progress on the project can be viewed on our webpage,

No previous running experience is necessary.  All ability and interest levels are welcome to give this sport a try.  Everyone makes the high school team.  There are no try-outs.  There are no cuts.  And, athletes are permitted to participate in another Fall Sport such as soccer, football, cheerleading, or volleyball during the Cross Country season.  Members of last year's high school team will be on hand to help the new runners learn about proper stretching techniques, running form, safety precautions and answer any questions that you might have about the sport.

We will meet from 3:00 to 4:00 at the Flag Pole near the Middle School Cafeteria.  Students should bring water & their running shoes.  If you have any questions, email Coach Smith at
