Dear Friends and Families,

WE NEED YOU to become an official Top 20 School.  Have you heard your children talking about being above the line?  Or maybe they have even mentioned that you are not honoring the absent.   What does that all mean?  You can find out on Tuesday.  Take a look at this Top 20 Moment about Gratitude. 

Mrs. Maxwell

Robotics Program at St. Michael!

St Michael's FTC team # 4644 started their season by attending the High Tech Kids FTC Kickoff at the University of Minnesota- Coffman Union on Sept 9 th.  The annual event is a chance for all FTC teams to gather, watch this year's game reveal video and to see a sample playing field set up in person.  This year's challenge is called "Relic Recovery" and involves game elements including scoring glyphs (foam blocks) into cryptoboxes (slots) and ending with the "end game" of attempting to place a relic (plastic figure) into a safe zone.
                This year's team consists of all 7 th graders; Ana Martel, Catherine Breyen, Maggie Brown, Mary Bradfield, Noah Koboushek, Ryan Glynn and Shannon Maxwell.  After the game reveal at the U of M, the team came back to St Michael's and brainstormed ideas on how to build their robot and scoring strategies.  The team will compete at several tournaments this year
