VEX worlds report
A many of you were asking about our week in Kentucky, I realized I forgot to include you in the report. Here is a summary of the week. We will put together some pictures later. Thank you for your interest and support.

This past week, three Mohave teams competed in the VEX World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky. Out of the 12,000 teams competing in VEX competitions worldwide this year, 800 participated in Louisville. One Mohave team competed in the VEX VRC middle school division, two teams in the VEX IQ middle school division.
 
These championships are a display of dedication, hard work, persistence, grit and team work over the course of one year. Teams qualify through regional and State or National championships worldwide. The competition calls for excellent collaboration, communication and problem solving skills, often under time pressure.
 
Chris Martindale represented team 7681 in the VEX VRC competition, supported by his father Chris Martindale Sr. as coach. He went out to perform with the best and held his own. The top 40 finish worldwide -just missing the finals- was truly remarkable and was the result of solid strategy sessions with his alliance partners. These included teams from Singapore, China (Google Translate served as interpreter) and Mexico, who were happy that Chris - a FLI student- could communicate in Spanish.
 
Team 7681C (Daniel Carpenter, Koen Erickson and Mario Urena) had a wide variety of partners during their matches. They collaborated well with struggling teams as well as the eventual winner of the competition and diligenty worked on match strategy to maximize their scores. The team qualified for the 32 team playoff in the team competition where their alliance was placed 10th.
 
Hard work and persistence resulted in an excellent showing of team 7681B in the skills challenges. These are done by individual teams to demonstrate their abilities in programming and driving. During the competition, Eli Arnold, Laney Olson, Ashley Wilking, Benjamin Yee and Miles Wohl continued to work on their programming to shave off important seconds and improve accuracy. They truly stepped up to the competition. We celebrate their 9th place worldwide in programming skills. Their score in driving skills just missed the top 10. While they could not repeat their STEM award from State championships, word-of-mouth about their exceptional presentation generated a constant stream of teams to the booth to inspect their CNC router project.
 
The teams thank their coaches led by Glenn Clevenger and mentors from Saguaro HS, their teachers Mr. Norris, Ms. Grant-Suggs and Mr. te Velde and the parent group for their coaching and organization. We are grateful for the financial support from the community that made this exceptional experience possible.

Speak Up Mohave
The Cartoon Network and Cox Communication are leading a National Anti-bullying campaign to Speak Up, very similar to the Stop, Walk, Talk we have at Mohave Middle School. They are promoting empowering students, teaching them to speak up for others by reporting to adults when unkind behavior is observed. Mohave was the only school in the State selected to host the Speak Up Event on October 21st. This video showcases this special event at Mohave Middle School. Our students use PAWS throughout the day and Speak Up by using the Stop, Walk and Talk!
