WILLIAMSTOWN — The Mechanical Mounties went from worst to almost first during their third year competing against larger, well-funded high school robotics teams.
The high-tech student squad from Mount Greylock Regional High School finished last and nearly last, respectively, in the two regional events they entered during the 2018 season of the international FIRST Robotics Competition.
At Mount Greylock, our mission is to prepare students with the skills and curricular experiences to thrive beyond graduation. Students chose different paths including the workforce, military and higher education. The list below provides a list of the colleges, universities and programs to which members of the Class of 2019 have been accepted.
The Fund for Sustaining Educational Excellence (SEE Fund) is currently seeking (one or two) additional volunteer members for their Board of Governors. Participation begins in September 2019 and Board members serve three-year terms. The SEE Fund is an endowment fund whose mission is to sustain educational excellence at MGRHS by providing financial support for superior educational initiatives through grants.
Students are placed on the honor roll when their quarterly letter grades average a B or better, and when the student receives no grade lower than a B- in all graded classes. If students earn any grade of a C+ or lower, their names will not be placed on the honor roll. The student must be carrying a minimum of four graded courses to be eligible. Students who withdraw from a course are not eligible for the honor roll for one semester.
The last week of classes at Williams College signals the end of the program for the year. Thank you to all the students and tutors who participated and to Marty Walter who organized the sessions. Together, you have made this a successful year for the program. Many assignments were completed, connections made and good times had by all who were involved. The program's final meeting for the school year is Thursday, May 9.
The purpose of this parent session will be an examination of oppositional/defiant behavior and emotional disabilities in children during adolescence. This is a pivotal time in development and it often results in co-morbid diagnoses including depression and anxiety.
