Congratulations to the High School Omers who participated in the State Odyssey of the Mind competition this weekend at UCF.  Both teams competed in different Problems and represented PK  extremely well.  The team  that  participated in the Problem 3 placed 6th in their category out of 19 teams and  the team that competed in Problem 5 placed 2nd out of 14 teams and received a bid to compete at the world competition at Iowa State in May.  We are extremely proud of both teams.  Special shout out to Kacie Bailey who received One of only two Omer awards handed out at competition.  Please help us wish Dr. Weller’s team best of luck at Worlds.  Congratulations!!!
