Weare Middle School offers archery

  • After a request by his students to offer archery, Weare Middle School physical education teacher Peter Barrasso went to Principal Mark Willis who was thrilled with the idea. He had seen the National Archery in the Schools Program work in other schools he’d worked in. Then Barrasso met Mike Colby who runs an indoor archery range in Concord. Barrasso is now a Level 1 basic archery instructor and the school has the equipment to offer the course. Emma Dee takes aim.

A fine idea! But in comparison, what I don't understand is why the SWAT team would be called in if a kid's mother put a knife in his lunchbox.

Please don't give Weare any ideas, they will want to purchase a Bearcat.

To clarify; with so many schools having a "zero tolerance" policy against weapons, and often carrying it to ridiculous lengths, I wonder how an archery program was approved. Or did somebody forget arrows are in the deadly weapon category? Well, good for Weare Middle School !
