We want to congratulate our Robotics Program and the coaches & sponsors who are so faithfully pursuing the GCPS vision, inspiring the next generation to make a positive impact. This account from coach, Anne Moore, certainly offers evidence of that!
“Yesterday, the four GMS and three GCPS elementary robotics teams traveled to Deep Run HS to compete in the regional VA FIRST robotics competition. This was a great day for teamwork, creativity, problem solving, and FUN! We could not be more proud of the manner in which our 36 students represented GCPS!
The stands were filled with team members’ family and friends and the noise level was deafening while the teams worked relentlessly to improve their mission scores. Behind the scenes, teams continued to fine tune their presentations and skits.
We are happy to report that the one GCPS team, Project Prevention, that competed in the Level 2 Division won the Core Values Award. This award is presented to the team that best represents and embodies the core values of Gracious Professionalism, Teamwork, and Respect! To us, this is the most important award as these students have developed skills that will continue to mold them into future leaders, as well as their understanding the importance of the saying “There is no I in TEAM!”.”
