VEX IQ Robotics Tournament

This past Saturday, January 5th, our robotics teams competed against other VEX IQ teams from across the area at MPES. We are very proud of their hard work, preparation and teamwork both leading up to Saturday and during the competition. Great job students!

I would like to say thank you to our tournament coordinator, Ms. Lisa Wolf, and to our three robotics coaches--Mrs. Crow, Ms. Davis and Mr. Bailey. Thank you also to the parents, teachers and staff members who volunteered to help with the tournament and came to cheer on our students!

Lost And Found

Is your son or daughter missing a jacket, sweatshirt, hoodie or other item of clothing? We have many items still remaining in our Lost and Found! Please remind your student to check the Lost and Found (located outside the art room) to see if any items belong to them. Families may also come by the office to check out the Lost and Found themselves. We will be donating remaining items in our Lost and Found to a local charity during the week of February 11th.
