Esports with Mr. Villa and Mr. Wilson
Thanks to a generous donation to purchase Nintendo Switches, as well as a donation of headphones and tech storage equipment, we have our team fully equipped and ready to go. This is a fun, unique opportunity for students to learn how to collaborate and work as a team. More highlights to come once they start competitions!
