Schools are closed for winter break. See you on Jan. 2, 2018!
NAMS North Pole Band entertained students on the last day of school before winter break. Mr. Nelson rocked the sax, Mr. Diaz brought the beat, and Mrs. Wind played piano. Mrs. Larson thumped the bass, while members of the staff danced and sang. A good time was had by all.
North Albany Middle School students were part of a team competing in the FIRST LEGO League tournament on Saturday at the Kelley Engineering Center at Oregon State University. Gray and her team, called The Syntax Errors, built a three-wheeled robot named Squidbert. They programmed the machine to complete missions, such as pressing a lever, picking something up or rotating an item. Our 2017 team was coached by Brian Sikora as part of the after school robotics club.
Brian Sikora- “I am so proud of my team, it was so fun and a great experience”.
Lets congratulate our students!!!
