Robotic's Club Leader Wanted
SJA School has an opportunity to partner with 4-H to establish a Robotics After School Program. 4-H is a nonprofit that engages young people to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development. 4-H encourages the personal development of youth in the focus of head, heart, hands and health. Curriculum ideas and materials would be provided by 4-H. The leader would focus on basic physical science concepts related to robotic systems, in order to guide participants to build and program their own robots. This will be open to students in grades 4-6. A modest stipend is available. If interested, please call Miss Jenkins at 533-1475.
The K of C Council #69 recently announced the winners in their local essay contest. Students in Catholic schools had to write an essay with the theme “Going to the Peripheries.” Congratulations to first place winner, Jack Ryczek; second place winner, Kristina Lavoie; and third place winner, Emma Farrell. All three winners are from SJA School. Jack Ryczek also won the District Contest and is moving onto the State level. This contest was open to grades 8 through 12. Council #69 also hosted a local “Keep Christ in Christmas” International Poster Contest. Again, all three local winners in the 11-14 age group were from SJA School. Congratulations to first place winner, Jack Ryczek; second place winner Alyson Boucher; and third place winner Hailey Tryba. Jack’s entry will now go to the State level. In the 8-10 year age group we had the first place winner. Congratulations to Gavin Mutti in the fifth grade.
Grade 4 students have been working hard researching a state and making a display in a box using their new knowledge. These state boxes will be on display in the School Hall on Friday, Feb. 9th. Parents are welcome to come in between 9:30 am and 1:30 pm to view some impressive work!
Reminder: We are halfway through the school year for parents who still need to fulfil their 10 volunteer hours. If you are not sure of your status, please call the Business Office at 536-6038.
