Mississippi Science Olympiad 2011

My two younger boys, N and D, are on the Chastain Middle School Science Olympiad team. They competed Friday in a series of events against other teams from all over the state. I’m proud to say the Chastain team won the 2011 Spirit Award and took home medals in two events. I am grateful to Coach Johnnie Canales and Ms. Bigelow for sponsoring the team. Here are some photos from the day.

    It’s always such an interesting day for the students. My only wish is that we adults could watch more of the events.

    Thank you, Mr. Canales. The kids are looking forward to working with you again this year — even though you are going to be semi-retired.
