Odyssey of the Mind News
After months of hard work, NINE teams represented Stratford Landing ES in the Regional Odyssey of the Mind tournament, held March 2 at West Potomac High School. All 63 students performed admirably and all of the coaches were still smiling, so it was a success all around!
The primary team (K-2nd grade) earned ribbons for their well thought-out and well-presented solution.
All 7 of the Division 1 teams (3rd-5th grade) showcased their creativity and had great results. One team placed 1st and will continue on to the State Tournament on 13 April; one team placed 2nd; one team placed 3rd; and one team placed 4th.
The Division 2 team (6th graders competing against 7th and 8th graders) demonstrated that they can compete with middle schoolers by placing 3rd.

Thanks again to all the coaches, judges, the PTA, and the Stratford Landing adminstrators and staff for their support of this great program!
