🌱 Sachem Daily: Sachem Battlebot Tournament + National Book Challenge

Good morning, neighbors! It’s me again, Andrew Tessler, your host of the Sachem Daily.

First, today’s weather:

Rain in the morning. High: 51 low: 46.

Here are the top 3 stories today in Sachem:

  1. Student-authors at Cayuga Elementary School named semifinalists in National Book Challenge. Students in Corinna Niski’s class worked collectively to publish their own book, “Care About Kindness”. They were chosen as semifinalists for the Studentreasures Publishing’s National Book Challenge and on June 15 the students will find out if they have won the challenge. The top three schools will receive grant money which will go towards funding school activities and initiatives. (Press Release Desk)
  2. Sachem East students host robot battles in the library. “The students created their designs and used the Spheros, which are programmable spherical robots, to power their robots. After several trial runs and frequent troubleshooting, the students then competed in the inaugural Battlebot Tournament hosted in the library where the groups competed until only one group remained and was named the winner of the competition.” (Press Release Desk)
  3. ICYMI: Merrimac Elementary students learn mindfulness practices through chair Yoga on SEL Day. On March 11, students participated in chair yoga to promote mindfulness, improve mind and body balance, increase focus and attention, increase flexibility and promote mobility. SEL Day celebrates the importance of social-emotional learning, and Yoga is a great outlet. (Press Release Desk)
