Husky Hits - Dec 4 2016

As the preschool has been joining us across the street on the main campus of St. James' the whole school has really come together. Some faculty members have called it a 'prolonged sleepover'! We are happy to say that the preschool will be ringing in 2017 with a new and improved campus on January 4th, the day before on January 3rd we invite you for a Facility Reveal. We will be showing off our new keypad protected gate, and the ServPro manager who oversaw the repairs will be there to answer your questions 4-5:30 PM on January 3rd (adults only and light refreshments will be served). 

We wanted to show you a little slice of life during this prolonged sleepover and send a huge thank you to Mrs. Vermette, Mrs. Lim, and Mrs. Richardson!]

- Robotics Team

Good news, our 5th graders competed this weekend and they placed 11th out of 23 teams in the FLL Qualifying Tournament. The team had a late start this year but still was able to deliver a robot, a deforestation solution for Red Pandas, and a video on  Core Values. They were worried about being prepared but they came together, programmed between rounds, and delivered. I'm very proud of the team. Team members:
 
Emrson Min
Owen Kirk
Bryce Ware
Jackson Schlotterbeck
