Poplar Bridge Elementary fifth grade class

Fifth grade class finds Winter Fete medallion

Tennis courts are usually pretty empty through the winter, but this year Parks and Recreation staff served up something at the Poplar Bridge court they hoped people would love—a Winter Fete medallion. 

After the fourth clue, a student named Emily from Matt Marohn’s Poplar Bridge Elementary fifth grade class found the medallion, see above. Marohn read all of his students the clues each day. Then they would search for the medallion during recess. The class won a prize package that included a pizza party, pictured, and more. 

“We were hoping people would think the medallion hunt was a fun way to get out in the parks during the winter,” Recreation Supervisor Mark Morrison said. “Congratulations to the students who found the medallion!”
