It was a heart pumping event as students solve math problems and trivia questions in front of a live audience. The tie breaker was between two JFK teams. Overall, JFK placed 2nd and 3rd and took home 6 plaques. Also in attendance were other JFK students who came to support and cheer on our participants. Good job Islanders. And way to go Math Department!!! Thank you Mrs. San Pablo and Mr. Aguilar for coaching and inspiring our students to obtain these awards.

¥ Today, May 3rd is “National Teachers’ Day”. This week is Teachers’ Appreciation Week. Please, show your appreciation to your teachers through your kind words and gestures everyday but most especially this week.
Hafa Adai Everyone!
If you have not visited the FestPac 2016 website, please find the time to do so. In our support of the event and all the potential learning activities we can do with our student, I highly encourage all teachers and schools to continue incorporating lessons related to FestPac and the participating island nations into their curriculum.
Featuring the different island nations, studying their culture and people, and many of their unique characteristics as well as similarities to each other and ourselves is a great way to help our students connect with our pacific heritage.
The FestPac2016 website is a great first place to start!!! (Please see link above or search for FestPac Guam 2016).
Thank you everyone!!!
