Thank Yous All Around
We are grateful to the many parents, friends, and staff members who helped make Saturday's Black and Gold Gala a huge success. The new venue was great, the auction items were highly sought after, and the company was superb! Special mention to Beth Linnen and Kelly Richard from the Development Department for putting on a great event. They, with their tireless volunteers, proved why St. Giles is truly the special and unique place that it is!
Hoorays Were Heard
This weekend, St. Giles sent groups of students to participate in a number of academically-related contests and competitions. We acknowledge the hard work presented by the gold award winning projects done at the regional science fair by Marcus B., Ella M., Emma N., and Owen M., as well as the state-qualifying projects by Jackie M. and Sam P. These projects were capably guided by junior high science teacher Ms. Amy Morton. Well done to all the students!
Additionally, the St. Giles Roar-botics team, led by Mr. David Silvis, placed 14th and 15th out of 30 teams, most of whom were high school teams, at the state Vex Robotics Championship. In only its second year, the team of Paul C., James H., Jarron L., Aedan P., Jorie S., and Merrick S. has worked for the past six months developing and refining their robots to compete in challenges set by the international Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, the ultimate STEM
activity for middle school and high school students. Congratulations to the team!
