DEL MAR VIKINGS VISIT

IWA TO DISCUSS COLLEGE

Representatives from Del Mar College's Viking Fellas club visited with Middle Level eighth-graders on December 13th. The visiting Vikings discussed with our Angels several important aspects of college life such as time management, seizing as many dual enrollment credits as possible once they transition to the High School Level, and fully utilizing all of the preparatory opportunities available at IWA. Eighth-graders left the college visit not only with a piece of mind for their futures, but also some Del Mar swag in the form of foam Viking horns!

VARSITY BOYS' BASKETBALL TEAM DELIVERS AT TOY TOSS

It rained cats and dogs — and bears, bunnies, and other soft creatures — during the varsity boys basketball team's third annual Toy Toss game on December 14th. The team netted hundreds of stuffed toys for Corpus Christi's local Ronald McDonald House and Toys for Tots. Attendees brought new, soft toys in lieu of admission to the game. When the Angels scored their first points, fans tossed their soft toys onto the court. The team held a stuffed toy drive throughout the week prior to the game so those unable to attend could donate as well.
