Odyssey of the Mind Competition
A team of Forestville Elementary students will represent Virginia for the second year in a row at the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals Competition after taking second place in the state level competition, held Saturday in Aldie, Va. Two other teams from Forestville also competed, placing fourth and fifth.
Odyssey of the Mind is a creative-thinking competition where a team must solve a long-term solution in the form of an original 8-minute skit, and also participate in a short-term problem, usually some kind of structure-building or word game given to the team on-site.
"Odyssey of the Mind emphasizes teamwork and outside-the-box thinking," said Jeffrey LeLoup, coach and 3rd grade teacher at Forestville. "These are skills necessary to succeed in life and this program celebrates it."
Students on the winning team are: Sydney Pham, Caroline Keys, Jake West, Sarina Bell, Aditya Khera, Cassie Dallas and Jenna Waters.
The team will travel to Lansing, Mich. on May 22-25 to compete in a four-day World Finals contest that includes more than 900 teams from 30 countries.
Last year, Forestville students brought home a Renatra Fusca award, which is one of the Odyssey organization's highest award and given to teams displaying exceptionally creative problem solutions.
The Llap a Thon was a great success. Thank you to the many volunteers for helping make it a wonderful event!!
Pick Up Procedures for After School Activities
There will now be new procedures in place for pick up from After School Activities for classes meeting Tuesday-Friday. Because the school doors will be locked, and the front office closing at 4:30, all parents are asked to come to the front doors for pick up, where students and their instructors will meet you at 5:00. Each parent will be asked to sign their child out at that time. You are asked to wait for your child in the front covered area of the school until they are dismissed by their instructor. Pick up for Monday classes will still be in their classrooms.
