Congratulations to our May Parent Volunteer of the month: Mr. Metoyer!

Mr. Metoyer and son

Here is what Mr. Connelly

had to say:  Since early March, Mr. Metoyer has dedicated his afternoons coaching our Santiago Cross Country program. He brings it every day with positive energy and does a wonderful job teaching the basics and fundamentals of Cross Country to our beginning runners! Coach Metoyer helped make the first ever Cross-Country meet and team a reality.

Congratulations Class of 2022
