One of Pine Trail Elementary’s Robotics Teams competed in Robot Fest at Spruce Creek High School and advanced to REGIONALS!!!! CONGRATULATIONS to WeCycle!!! Only 4 of 22 teams advanced. Our students competed against middle school students, as well as other elementary teams. This team also won the award for Gracious Professionalism and our FABULOUS coach won the Mentor Award! (Which is won by students taking the initiative to complete the Mentor Award form to nominate him. Four of our students completed the form and when the judge announced the winner she said she was brought to tears while reading what the students wrote about him). We are so very fortunate to have such an amazingly dedicated teacher who gives so much of himself and his time to our students. Thank you to Mr. Waterman!!! (Joanna Kaney-Olivari)
