Pushing Forward


Saranac Elementary School Principal Tracy Manor (left) and students power through some push-ups and sit-ups in between acts during the school’s annual talent show Friday in Saranac. Manor told her students that if they did well on their academic benchmark testing, a diagnostic test the students take testing them on math and ELA during the beginning, middle and end of the school year, she would match their academic effort by doing push-ups and sit-ups. The students did exceptionally well, which left Manor with having to do 117 push-ups and 145 sit-ups.
