Our St. Mary's Math Teams have been enjoying another successful season. Out of 14 teams in the Southern Oregon Mathematics League, the two from St. Marys are among the top three! Fierce competition has made this year's contest a very close one. There is only one meet left. Go Math Team!
Congratulations to our robotics teams, Quasar and Pulsar, and their coaches! Both teams are moving on to the Oregon State Tournament on May 1.
This year’s qualifying tournament was tougher than previous years, because we were combined with another area of the state to compete against. Normally, we are just competing against Southern Oregon Area Robotics (SOAR) teams. Even with the extra competition, we are advancing!
Congratulations to Pulsar for winning the Motivate Award. The Motivate award sparks others to embrace the culture of FIRST! This team chosen for this awardembraces the culture of FIRST and clearly shows what it means to be a team. This judged award celebrates the team that represents the essence of the FIRST Tech Challenge competition through Gracious Professionalism and general enthusiasm for the overall philosophy of FIRST and what it means to be a FIRST Tech Challenge team. This is a team who makes a collective effort to make FIRST known throughout their school and community, and sparks others to embrace the culture of FIRST.
Congratulations to Quasar for winning the Think Award. The Think award removes engineering obstacles through creative thinking. This judged award is given to the team that best reflects the journey the team took as they experienced the engineering design process during the build season. The engineering content within the portfolio is the key reference for Judges to help identify the most deserving team. The team’s engineering content must focus on the design and build stage of the Team’s Robot.
Last weekend, members of the St. Mary's high school Sparrow Club and robotics teams partnered with Ascension Lutheran Church and First Presbyterian Church to prepare 240 sandwiches for residents of our community who are experiencing homelessness. Together, the students earned 10 hours of community service towards our annual school-wide goal of 256 hours. Through the generous sponsorship of the Hillcrest Committee, these service hours will be translated into financial assistance for the family of our Sparrow, Sophia Grimm.
Every year our students participate in The Memory Project, where they create a handmade portrait of a child from a developing country. The portrait is then sent to the child as a special gift. This year, St. Mary's students sent ten portraits to Cameroon. Next up is children living in India!
