“Can Do” Robotics Competition

This year’s “Can Do” robotics project and competition was fantastic. We were particularly amazed at this year’s group’s engineering design skills and creative thinking. Also impressive was the excellent collaboration skills during class time. Our competition this year was very intense with several robots performing at high levels and the competition was very close. When all was said and done, the final results in the final round were as follows:

  • First Place- “Bubby III”, 11.81 sec
  • Second Place- “Robo Joe”, 23.69 sec
  • Third Place- “Snowman”, 25.76

Next, students will explore ultrasonic sensors!

“Written on these walls are the stories that I can’t explain.” – Alivia, Grade 5

Congratulations to Alivia! Earlier this year while studying poetry in her language arts class, she began writing her own poems and publishing them in Google Docs.  She wrote a poem titled “Story of My Life” and entered it in the Oregon Poetry Association’s student poetry contest. Part of her poem was published in the Memorable Lines section of the student poetry book Cascadia. Congratulations, Alivia.

Another Great Music Program!

2016-05-26 14.53.41The 4th and 5th grade students performed wonderfully during their music program last week. The theme this year was Oregon history. Mrs. Randolph, once again, led our students wonderfully through practices, rehearsals, and the final performance. Great job to all who were involved.
