District News from the Odyssey of the Mind Regional Competition
A big congratulations to all of our Owen J. Roberts students who competed in the PA South-Central Regional competition this Past Saturday at Millersville University. Owen J. Roberts fielded an all-time high 13 teams this year with nearly 100 Owen J. students participating in the competition. Seven of our 13 teams will be moving on to compete in state finals competition April 7th by virtue of their first or second place finishes.
Elementary teams from both French Creek and East Vincent came in first place while North Coventry took second place honors.
Of the five teams competing from our middle school, we had teams of students taking first, second, and third place honors. Two of those middle school teams will move on in the competition.
Owen J. Roberts high school took three teams to Millersville, two of which finished in first place and will compete in April at the PA state finals contest. Both of these high school groups earned the top score in all three problem solving categories. Our high school also earned a special Odyssey award for exceptional creativity. This team was singled out for composing and performing original musical numbers and for their innovative costume designs.
GREAT JOB OWEN J!!
Last night, several of our East Vincent band members performed with the Chester County Intermediate Band Fest at Tredyffrin-Easttown Middle School. These students were selected to participate due to their hard work and dedication to their instrument. They rehearsed throughout the day and performed an amazing concert at night! Please congratulate these students today for all of their hard work:
