Vex Robotics Club

Vex Robotics Club attends Seattle Prep League Finals

Saint Alphonsus School’s Vex Robotics Club wrapped up their competition season with a strong showing at Seattle Prep League Finals on February 27th. Our three teams finished in second, third and fifth places overall. Congratulations students! We are proud of your achievement!

The team has been working since September to build and improve a robot to meet this year’s challenge called “Next Level.”  You can learn more about the game here:

We intend to run the club again next year for middle school students.  If your child is interested in joining, please contact St. Al’s parent Chris Legere at [email protected] and keep your eye out for notices in Angels’ Angle before the end of the year and at the start of next school year.

Fourth Grade Salmon in Schools Project

Last week Ms. Duncan and the 4th Grade released their fry (small salmon) back into the wild at Carkeek Park. The reintroduction of the salmon was the culmination of their Salmon in the Schools project. While applying such core skills as observation and data collection, students learn about life cycles, interrelationships in ecosystems, environmental stewardship, and the importance of salmon to Pacific Northwest commerce and culture.
