While your mother may tell you 'not to play with your food,' that rule went out that window as students from Snake River Middle School (SRMS) made 'fruit and veggie-mobiles' with the intention of racing them down a ramp and smashing them into a juicy mess at Jensen Grove Thursday afternoon.

â€śThe prosecutor told us to continue moving forward,â€ť he said, â€śso we are in an ongoing investigation. Â

Family, friends, teachers, administrators and staff members celebrated with the 126 graduates of Snake River HIgh School Wednesday evening.

Three more banners have been hung in the gymnasiumâ€”for state championships in boys soccer, football and volleyball.
Twelve different teams represented Snake River at state events.
"What's unique about this class is how well you treat one another," Bonney said.
