Each year the Red River Optimist Club holds a letter-writing contest entitled “Why My Grandparent is Special to Me.”  The contest is open to all students in grades 2-12 in Wichita Falls and the surrounding region.  This year, we SWEPT the 7/8th grade division with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.  Our three winning eighth graders are Chandler Duffle, Reagan Macha, and Connor Mitchell.  They will find out which places they received at the awards ceremony.  Congratulations to all!
