Here is Aubrey working on her terrarium. The Jrs do a lot of fun and exciting things. Great job Aubrey.



Our Great Junior Rockhounds,

Courtney and her Regional SciOly hardware...medaled in 4 of her 5 events. Great job to Courtney and all the students.


Congratulations to Jadon Henrich and Bella Reborn. They won many medals at the Science Olympiad Regional yesterday. I will check all those posts from last night and post a photo later today.
Jadon competed in 6 events and spend most of his school year working hard on all of it. His partner in Rocks and Minerals, Bryly Brenner, was unable to attend the regional due to illness. I hope he will be feeling better soon. Basil, one of our C-team high school students, will be my assistant coach to help Jadon and Bryly rock that difficult rock and mineral test when they go to States Competion in April. So glad to know all these hard working kids at Athens.
