It's really hard to turn down chocolate and flowers!  Thank you for making the first week such a success.

Their willingness to take on projects, concerns for other, and desire to improve our society and school environment. Seventh grader Noah Kuboushek, and eighth graders Alex Lloyd and Cole Edwards were honored today at this special event.  Congratulations!

Thier FLL project this year centers around water: how it is consumed, utilized, wasted, and transported by humans. Students outlined their problem, research, data, results, and solutions to her, while she asked probing questions regarding their analysis of data and their steps to take moving forward. We wish them all the best at their upcoming tournament!
