Winter Journey Dates
For planning purposes we wanted to send out a quick reminder about the dates for the winter journey. Please block off February 15-17, 2012 on your schedule for your students to participate.

Robotics Update
Ethan will be taking the high school robotics team to the Montana FTC Championship Tournament to be held on February 4, 2010 in Shroyer Gymnasium on the MSU campus in Bozeman. The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges teams of young people and their mentors to solve a common problem in a six-week timeframe using a standard "kit of parts" and a common set of rules. Teams build robots from the parts and enter them in competitions designed by Dean Kamen, Dr. Woodie Flowers, and a committee of engineers and other professionals.

End of Semester
The end of the semester is just around the corner on January 20, 2012. High School finals will take place January 16-19.
