Back on June 13th, some of the Tacoma Hounds flew over to Ireland for an action-packed week-and-a-half of Hurling activity!
Over the weekend, the Hounds spent some time down at the Sean-nós Festival held in Olympia on The Evergreen State College’s campus. While there to put on a quick hurling demonstration, we were able to mingle with some of the other festival-goers. We’ll have to practice to keep from butchering them, but we tried to pick up a few phrases for when we send a couple Co-op members to Ireland in June.
One of the Co-op’s members, Sean Davis, was honored as a Finalist at the 17th Annual Ahead of the Class award ceremony on April 2nd 2018. 10 teachers from the Renton School District were nominated for the awards, 5 of whom were chosen as winners. The Ahead of the Class award program was founded by the Renton Chamber of Commerce, Renton schools, and Renton businesses to enhance community awareness of the excellence of education in Renton.
