National Archery in the Schools Program takes flight at EGF Sacred Heart.
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. -- Hitting the bulls-eye is always a good thing when shooting archery, but it wasn't the main focus for the eager fourth- and fifth-graders lined up to hone their skills on a recent cold Sunday afternoon in a gym at East Grand Forks Sacred Heart School. This session was more about form and safety -- to start with, at least -- and the three boys and two girls hung on every word from instructor Wayne Pietruszewski. The bulls-eyes would come later. "Who remembers the right way to shoot a bow?" Pietruszewski quizzed the students, who responded with the archery equivalent of lip-synching, drawing back pieces of string with one arm while keeping the other arm straight to mimic the act of shooting a bow. Proper form, Pietruszewski explained, will result in straighter-flying arrows. "That's going to come with practice," he said. "The more we shoot, the better we'll get."

The spooky myths and unsettling appearance of bats make them a perfect creature to vilify this time of the year.
