Hello 9th Grade & Families!
Exhibition is NEXT WEEK! We are so excited! Mark your calendars! We will see you all at 5:30pm on December 19th!
*Collin H. wrote a letter to Home Depot and got a $50 discount on supplies for their exhibition project! Great job thinking about getting supplies in a different and unique way and going above and beyond!
*Kione returned from feeling sick and jumped straight back into the project, working on his circuit and working after school to catch up. We’re so proud of you!
*Howard/Amarillas/Charley team went to Tempest! They were all so open to new experiences and bonded as a whole team! Great job trying something new all!
