Meeting:  Students of the Month Meeting - This month we had the two students from Shapleigh and one from Traip.  It was a full house!  Superintendent Eric Waddell shared the following pictures of our students with their families and teachers he took after the meeting.  Thank you, Eric.



This is Claire Stith, a 4th grader at Shapliegh with her Dad, Mom, 2 brothers and two teachers from Shapleigh that told us about Claire - Diana Westman and Melissa Plocinski.  They told us how Claire leaves nice notes for her teachers and friends and is every teachers dream.  Claire has the most amazing smile!  During our Q&A time, Claire told us about her family and that she likes to play outside with her dog when she takes a break from her tablet.



 This is Frances "Francie" Burke a 5th Grader at Shapleigh School with her Dad and Mom and Francie's teacher Emily Foster.  Another outstanding and dedicated student!  During our Q&A, Francie told us she also likes to play with her dog and is involved in playing soccer right now which she enjoys.  


This is Killian Campbell at 10th grader at Traip Academy.  Killian is shown here with Principal John Drisko, Killian's Mom and a family friend Collette Howard.  Principal Drisko told us that it was the administration's turn to pick the student of the month and he was lucky enough to intrdouce him to us.  Killian is very involved in designing things and printing them out with a 3-D printer.  During our Q&A, he showed us an instrument that he designed and printed - it really work as he played it.  He also demonstrated a hand that he designed and printed.  By pulling elastics he could make a fist with the hand or just move a couple of fingers.  Imagine what he will do during the next two years!


Once again we had an excellent sample of the students in our school system - thank you to the parents and teachers for all your hard work and support to your students!  



50-50 Raffle:  50% of the pot goes for club administration and 50% goes to the

               lucky individual if raffle ticket is chosen and they select the one joker hidden

               in the ever  decreasing deck of cards. If the joker is not drawn then the pot rolls

               over to the next week.


Samik's ticket was drawn and he tried for the $195.50 pot --

but unfortunately he pulled the 5 of hearts and not the joker -

better lucky next time Samik!


(Our nomal photographer and newsletter editor is on vacation and yours truly is not the best photographer and my helper wasn't happy with the picture he took.  Sorry Samik, no picture of you losing this morning.  Better lucky next time!)
