Congratulations, Student Council Winners
Over the course of the last month, the Student Council campaigns and elections were held in grades 6, 7, and 8. Many capable leaders gave strong speeches. At the culmination of campaign events, elections were finally held. Winners were determined through a procedure using two sources. One source was the traditional student vote, which accounts for 50% of the final determination. The second source was a rubric system, which accounts for the other 50% of the final determination. Each teacher filled out a rubric that identified each candidate’s leadership capabilities.
A special congratulations to those who were chosen as leaders among our leaders. Those students include: Co-Presidents: Jack O'Malley and Emma McClellan.
News From Our Robotics Club
Congratulations to our 65 robotics students who participated in their first robotics competition.
