RCS Olympiad teams advance toward regionals
The junior high team and the high school team are both moving forward toward their regional tournaments. The high school team will compete on Feb. 6 at the College of Saint Rose in Albany. The junior high team will compete on March 13 at Ravena Middle School South of Albany. The selection process for individual events is ongoing for the junior high but is almost complete for the high school.
At the January combined-team meeting a motion was passed to send a $200 check from the Science Olympiad Trip Account in the student fund to the American Red Cross. The donation is intended to assist relief aid for the Haitian earthquake victims. The funds in this account were raised by the team members as donations.
