More than 40 students of Jefferson Middle School and Jefferson Academy participated in the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA) 2011/2012 Ski Program. Students learned how to ski during three 1-day ski trips to Ski Liberty, Pennsylvania in January and February.

On Tues., March 6, Jefferson Middle School won the DCIAA Alpine Ski Championship for Middle Schools at Ski Liberty. Seventh-grader Sally Yu won the gold medal in the novice category. In the beginner race, Tayron Moss took the gold, Amee Barnes took silver and Taija Broadhurst won bronze. Congratulations to all our winners!

The DCIAA Ski Program was started in 1973 by the late Harold Plummer. This year the program was coordinated by  volunteers, including Julia and Philip Faxio who have been with the program for 31 years.
