The St. Edmund Elementary School Robotics Team, “The Nerd Herd”, under the direction of Mr. Michael Zwosta, competed in the First Lego League’s Hydro Dynamic Challenge. The group worked to research a problem within the human water cycle and design a solution using a robot that could improve the way people find, transport, use or dispose of water. The challenge culminated the Team’s work for the first half of this academic year. The Nerd Herd will now go on to perfect the abilities of their robot, and begin the process of preparing for next year’s challenge, Inter- orbit Space Exploration.
OLTCA celebrated their annual Christmas Concert this week.
The students of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Academy generously gave back! Each year, they work with Our Lady of Mercy Church and St. Michael’s Church in Brooklyn. Their students buy Christmas Gifts for children (of all different age groups) of those parishes that are in need of a brighter Christmas. This is such a humbling day for the children as they are taught a very valuable lesson…it is better to give than receive
Each child (from Pre3 to 8th grade) were able to present their gifts to the representatives of the churches. By the time they were done, the stage was full of Christmas presents!
This year Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy was lucky enough to be asked to perform at the King County Democratic Chairman Mr. Frank Seddio’s Christmas Lighting Ceremony! Thousands come to see Mr. Seddio’s display every year, it is a great community affair.
Mayor De Blasio came to the event and spoke to the students, which was a real treat for all. After, our dancers got to introduce Santa with their ‘Santa Claus is coming to Town’ dance!
