For those families interested in or in need of transportation (bussing) 🚌 for the 2022-23 school year, the transportation form MUST be submitted in PowerSchool no later than Friday, August 12 to secure bussing for the first day of school. After August 12, families will have to wait until September 12 to receive a bus route and transportation information for their child(ren).

Please make every effort to take care of this in a timely manner, should it apply to you and your family.

Galileo STEM Academy's robotics teams competed at the Global Conference for Educational Robotics (GCER) last week in Norman, Oklahoma. Their varsity team placed 2nd in their division following a run-off match. The JV team placed 2nd in their division. The school was also awarded the KISS Award (Keep it simple students) for their robot(s) being simple yet highly effective and consistent in completing targeted tasks. Galileo’s design is not only simple, but also robust and well built. In addition, Galileo’s 4th and 5th grade JBC students completed multiple coding challenges over the five-day conference developing a stronger knowledge of C coding language. 📸 Photos: • The first is Calvin Knight and Aubry Oakey (not pictured is Abi Perdomo) on the Varsity Team. • Picture 2 is our JV team with Bailey Couture and Theron Bennett. • Picture 3 is our JBC team with Tavin Bennett, Johnathan Mullen, and Amelia Turner. #wearewestada #proudtobewasd

Ben is a student at Pepper Ridge Elementary. In 2019, when Ben was in Kindergarten, he was planning a lemonade 🍋 stand to make some money. After a visit to the Humane Society 🐾 that week, he saw that some of the cat 🐱 enclosures didn't have toys and it broke his heart. He decided he would donate whatever money he made to them instead. He raised $220 and stayed true to his word and donated every penny. Due to Covid he took a break in 2020, then resumed in 2021. That year he raised $600. This year during Spring Break, he held his third one. The Idaho Humane Society shared it on their page, then some radio stations picked it up as well. Ben had tons of visitors from all over and he raised $1800, all of which he gladly handed over again. Ben plans on having a lemonade 🍋 stand every Spring now, just in time for "kitten season" when they need supplies the most.
