  • 2019 Season Is Here

    8 September, 2018

    We just finished our first Parent Info meeting. I always hope more parents will show up. I will be posting the slides shortly to this site, as well as emailing them out to parents, along with forms and links. We had t-shirts there, which will be back for next Saturday (9/15), for sale.

    We also had a display of the new shirts available, a polo and two glittery shirts. These are for sale, but you must order specifically. We have order forms available in the build room for those.

    We will hold another Parent Info meeting in November that will be geared towards this specific build and competition season. That info meeting will go over travel expectations, destinations, and schedules.


    25 August, 2018

    We are rolling into the pre-season. Students are already working on their certifications for their subteams. There is still room on some of the subteams like business/media, design, and build. We are gearing up for the first Parent Info Meeting on September 8th to be held here at VAHS in the MPR.


    23 June, 2018

    We are gearing up for our next season. Our first meeting will be held 8 August, 2018. We will meet at Vail Academy and High School. Currently we are to be in the MPR, from 4pm to 6pm. Kara Burkholder is the new Team Captain and Jacob Bessette is the new team Vice-Captain.

    The first meeting will consist primarily of introductions, sub-team orientations, and paperwork. We will get contact information and send home permission forms. Email is still our primary source of communication, so it is imperative that we have not only students' email addresses, but parents as well.

    I look forward to seeing you there.
