Welcoming Walter the Warrior


Antioch Upper Grade School ran extracurricular activities for students during remote, hybrid, and in-person learning throughout the school year. The extracurricular activities offered at AUGS this year gave students the opportunity to display their skills in the arts, academic knowledge, and athletic ability. 

Students had the opportunity to participate in band, choir, and orchestra rehearsals, while working on individual and group progress. Students participated in practices and competitions for Robotics, Scholastic Bowl, and Science Olympiad in a virtual environment against other schools. Students joined the newly formed Humanitarian Society, which helped clean up the Antioch Upper Grade School campus and also planted flowers. Student Council planned several events for the school and community. The Athletic Department ran two seasons of Intramurals to wrap up the school year. Season 1 had 90 students participate in Volleyball, Soccer, Softball, Cross Country, and Dance. Season 2 had over 100 students participate in Basketball, Track and Field, Lacrosse, and field sports. 

Finally, Student Council purchased a new warrior mascot uniform. Five names were provided by Student Council that the student body and staff voted from to name the new mascot. The winning name for the mascot is ‘Walter the Warrior.’
