Cool Kids of the Week!

Check out this week's cool kids decked out in their shades!


Robotics Team

The following students were selected for the robotics team. Any 8th grader who wanted to join was automatically accepted and I randomly picked from the other students who said they wanted to go to the competitions. The first competition is in Revere on Saturday, December 7th.

These are the students who were selected (I will send a paper home with them next week). Please let me know if that will not work for you so I can potentially pick other students - they can still be in robotics and work on the challenges - they just won't officially compete. They will need to be driven to and from the competition on Saturday, December 7th.

Liam Donnelly (8th)
James Burke (8th)
Joseph Lacirigrnola (8th)
Ryan Whiting (8th)
John Ruston (8th)
Jordan Lacifigrila (6th)
Kaleb Kaplan (7th)
Mateo Ibanez (5th)
Tynan Thornell (5th)
Gabe Paguyo (6th)
