Well, after 11 rounds of staying in first place with the robot, these guys wound up 3rd in the last 4 final rounds. We had a fluke no score on a questionable gap in a 120 pt valve replacement that thwarted our plans to advance to Denver. Regardless, they brought two 3rd place trophies home (the other was for overall marketing, display & notebook) & an award for most innovative design. Not too bad for our 2nd year & 1st attempt at the overall BEST Competition.
What-A-Day! We had some kiddos step WAY out of their comfort zones today & it was great. Merced, Alyssa, Randy, Rylee, & Lola started us off with the first Marketing presentation of the day. They had to sell our company “Robotidocs” Shark Tank style. Then Randy, Alyssa & Merced had to turn around & give informal interviews in our display. They did great, jitters and all! All this wouldn’t have been possible without our behind-the-scenes workers. It was Alyssa, Maggie & Kylie whose vision, many hours making posters & establishing ‘Young Money’s’ I.V. that set the backdrop for our team exhibit. And I can’t leave out the muscle/legs of the whole operation. Martin, Dayson & Ryan hauled in the display, put it together & even sprinted back to the bus to search for a missing piece of PVC. I can’t wait for the fun part. GAME DAY is tomorrow!!! If you have never been to one of these things, you really don’t know what you are missing. 10:30am Percefull Fieldhouse @ NWOSU will be poppin'

Middle School Fall Field Trip Tomorrow!
Band Field Trip to NWOSU We are going on a field trip this Friday to NWOSU in Alva to spend the day with their band! Students will have the opportunity to meet with NWOSU band students and faculty that play their same instruments, as well as listen to performances and watch the college band’s marching halftime show. We will leave at 8:00 a.m. and return between 5:30-6:00 p.m. Lunch will be paid for by the school, but it would be appreciated if students could bring $1 for a tip. Students may also bring money to stop at a quick stop on the way home. This is an amazing opportunity for our band students to learn more about their instruments and to receive feedback on how to improve their performance. I am very excited that NWOSU’s instrumental faculty has worked with me in getting this planned for our students. I am looking forward to seeing what our students gain from this experience. Please let me know if you have any questions. Mrs. Broyles
This week's Farmer's and Merchant's Bank "Banking on a Wildcat" goes to Bristen Robertson. Her teacher's had this to say about her: Bristen is an exceptionally intelligent and talented individual; however, she does not force her brilliance upon anyone. She quietly constructs her masterpieces, whether that be an essay, origami, scratch art, or digital design. Bristen very rarely has the first word because she is willing to let others speak first; however, she does sometimes get the last word, which can be very powerful. The ideas and thoughts that form in her intuitive mind can leave a class feeling thoughtful and introspective. Bristen greets teachers with a small, pleasant smile each day and is dedicated to turning in nothing less than her best work. Bristen is kind, has a fun sense of humor, and possesses some legit dance moves. The world needs more people like Bristen. Congratulations, Bristen!
