Middle School Robotics Teams Earn Trip to State Championship
Two WCS Middle School VEX Robotics teams earned an invitation to the State Championship! In their first year, students had to overcome learning to build and program the VEX Robotics System and competing against mostly high school teams. The WCS teams consistently finished in the top half of each competition and were always one of the top middle school teams at each event.
Kipper, the piglet, was excited to meet our WCS preschoolers! Kipper lives in the Barn where students were able to feed and pet him. The highlight, however, was when the students each had a turn to run around the field with him and Mr. Heetderks. They learned many facts about pigs, which they have been excited to share with family and friends.
