Achilles is a mythical character in Greek mythology. Achilles was dipped into the River Styx by Peleus so he would be indestructible, not realizing that his heel never touched the water. During the Trojan War, thousands of trojan arrows struck Achilles but had no effect. But then, one arrow hit him in the heel (the vulnerable part of his body). Because of that, Achilles died. The moral of the story is that everyone has a weak spot. In the Ultimate Snowdown snow-sculpting contest between P.S. 38 and Jefferson Middle School, P.S. 38 sculpted a statue of Achilles called Achilles Gets the Point, which won them the contest.
