Fine Arts Night

Fine Arts Night was a huge success.  Thank you to all who came out to support our Fine Arts programs!



Our Intermediate School iLink Day for October was a grand success!  The day was filled with team-building activities and innovative interdisciplinary projects.
One exciting and much loved activity had all iLink teams taking part in a STEM Challenge while being guided by their faculty mentors. Each iLink team had to work together to construct a catapult that would have the ability to launch a small pumpkin (Pumpkin Chuckin’) with team points earned for distance and accuracy of design. Limited resources and time constraints provided the perfect analogy to the global workplace and how team members must work collaboratively in order to garner success. Teams worked quickly to devise a strategy while managing the clock to ensure there was sufficient time for designing, building, and testing their creations. Once the teams completed their catapults, all teams gathered at the launch area. Each team had the opportunity to launch 3 times with measures for distance and durability of the catapults. Awards were given for Greatest Distance, Most Unique Design, and Most Team Spirit.  Congratulations to Coach Hughes’ group!
