Afterschool Robotics and Tech Club competition

Our 4th-6th grade Afterschool Robotics and Tech Club recently held their robotics competition. Students used Lego Mindstorms to build robots that had to perform tasks such as maneuvering balls to places on a court and weave through a maze based on their programming. All of the students did a great job and learned from the experience! We appreciate BYU's support and leadership with this program.

We will be spotlighting a Student of the Week from each classroom. These students receive a certificate and prize from Mrs. Peery with the chance to be drawn out at the end of each month for a special activity with the Principal. The focus for the month of December is "Honesty".  The students are selected by their teachers as they see their students show honesty here at school.  Here are the Students of the Week for December 4.

Ms. Akin's class had a Thanksgiving feast last Tuesday.  We made Native American headbands and Pilgrim hats, and ate a small meal together. The feast included the students setting the tables, practicing table manners and teaching our parents how to have proper manners, and eating pumpkin pie and other small treats. It was fun for both the students and parents who came!
