Burgers for Civic Engagement

Ophir Middle School and Lone Peak High School (LPHS) Social Studies teacher Tony Coppola is often seen harnessing the flames of a massive grill outside of LPHS home games. The burgers he masterfully grills help 8th grade students earn their way to Washington D.C. He describes how the fundraising works and why the effort is so important.

Lone Peak High School Pep Band director invites community involvement

Dust off the old clarinet, get a new reed for the saxophone sitting in the corner of the closet, or find the old trumpet in the attic – and start practicing for next basketball season. Tim Sullivan, Big Sky School District music teacher is inviting community participation in the only pep band to exist at Lone Peak High School in recent memory.

Embracing winter

Beams from flashlights illuminated the darkness as snow blew and the temperature fell to negative six degrees. Boy Scouts worked their way out to three season tents in an effort to earn frost points for their camping merit badges.

So many ways to do good deeds

Rotary Club of Big Sky Rotarians Jo Lieburg, Tim Kent, Blair Mohn, Woody Burt, Laura Seyfang and Big Sky Community Food Bank director Sarah Gaither helped teach the 8th grade class about service, according to Rotary President Laura Seyfang. The week-long effort allowed for the kids to hear from a past Peace Corps member who worked in Tanzania.
