Congratulations 8th Grade Robotics Team!
On Saturday, 05/04, our robotics teams wrapped up their season with a bang at a major tournament in Palm Deserts. Despite facing technical challenges like servo malfunctions and microcontroller glitches, our 8th-grade team showcased incredible resilience. They worked tirelessly to overcome obstacles, rebuilding their robot and reprogramming it between rounds.
Their hard work paid off with an undefeated streak until the semi-final round, securing an impressive third-place finish in the double elimination rounds. Moreover, they even earned the Judges’ Choice Award for their teamwork and sportsmanship.
As the San Diego Champions, our team received a special invitation from the KISS Institute for Robotics. They’ve been invited to attend the Global Conference for Robotics and participate in the International Robotics Competition in North Carolina this summer! From winning championships to this latest success, our team’s dedication shines through. Well done, team!

We had very successful events throughout the month which included a Read-A-Thon, Book Donation Drive, Read-Aloud, and Crescent Moon Book Fair.
