Gofundme to help fundraise for our trip to Washington DC

Our goal is to fundraise in support of sending our entire team to the Global Innovation Awards in Washington DC.  While the event itself has no fees to participate, the team will need to provide their own transportation, lodging, and meals for team members, coaches, and chaperones.

Though challenging, every family is committed to doing their part.  Our students are crafting and baking items to sell at our school's upcoming craft fair.  Donations and raffles are in progress.  Families are committed to making a personal donation.  Corporate and business sponsors are being contacted.

We are also reaching out to our community, family, and friends for their support.  Please visit our Gofundme site and consider making a donation to our team.  

We'll do our best to make Vermont proud!

A Resolution at the State House

It is such an honor to be able to represent Vermont in this competition.

Today, we had the amazing opportunity to have some team members visit Montpelier to hear a resolution read honoring our team's accomplishment.







The text of the resolution was read and adopted in the assembled chamber.



Afterwards, Representative Bancroft continued by asking the team to stand and be recognized.



A few pictures and some quick handshakes later, we made our way back to school just in time for math!
