Parents and Students!
Our time is almost here!
Science Olympiad competition is on Saturday, March 24th. More info on parking, details, etc. will be coming soon!
We do need a parent volunteer or two to coordinate snacks, etc for the day of the event. They do sell drinks and pizza for lunch but always nice to have some snacks and low stress activities for the kids. Please email me asap if you wish to head up coordinating this and our end of season party! Hopefully we will make it to the State competition in May.
Make sure your students are studying their events every day for at least a few minutes to keep their skills sharp!
Our T-shirts came in, their was a mistake so after we grabbed a quick pic for the yearbook, we sent them back and should have them back next week.

We will be announcing the event assignments tomorrow. We still have a few event spaces not filled. We will have 3 alternates as we have 23 Science Olympiad participants. These alternates will select two events to be alternates in and study with those event teams and be ready to compete if needed in March. The event assignments were determined by the mini competitions we held each week. We are ready to buckle down and start preparing for our individual events.
If you were interesting in coaching an event or helping, please reach out to the coach facilitating that event to arrange practice times. A sheet with the assignments will be sent home tomorrow.
We have truly been inspired by the motivation of our Olympians!
Coaches Davis, Handley, Eitenmiller, and Chatha
