We inadvertently failed to mention in last week’s message that GHS Students Isabella Lau, Ariel Tan, Isabella DeMarco and Caterina Marchionne, known as the “Rock n Roll Robotics Team,” also competed in the Los Angeles FIRST Tech Challenge Qualifying Tournament held at Venice High School and won several awards including the First Place Think Award. They have advanced to the LA Regional Championship to be held at Monrovia High School this Saturday. Congrats and Good Luck ladies!
Would you like to inspire our students by sharing your professional story? Gabrielino is launching “Gabrielino Connects” - where students and teachers interview professionals to learn about their journeys via classroom video calls. Last year, employees from Microsoft, a Wall Street Journal reporter, and a professional illustrator spoke to students and shared about their careers. We would like to expand this. Tell students what work you do and give them a virtual tour of your workplace. They'll love it! Go to www.gabrielinoconnect.com to see photos and videos and to find out more and sign up to be a volunteer.
