Congratulations to Mr. Mattson’s Pre-AP class and a huge thank you to the Camas Education Foundation! Today we were informed that the grant Mr. Mattson’s class researched, wrote and presented, IPods Touches: Touching Children’s Learning Experiences, has been chosen and awarded $7,500. With this money, during the 2011-12 school year our teaching team will pilot the use of a Learning Lab that consists of twenty 8GB iPod Touches to identify best teaching practices with these devices. This lab will be a lasting legacy from the Class of 2015 to the future student body of Skyridge

Satya Hariharan, a seventh-grade student at Skyridge Middle School, won third place at the Washington State level of the 2011 National Geographic Bee Competition which was held on Friday, April 1, at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. Following Satya’s school-level win in January, he took a written test and qualified to participate at the state level which included 100 fourth- to eighth-grade students from across Washington. Through rounds of elimination the number decreased to ten and then narrowed to a final three. The final contenders completed four difficult rounds of competition. Satya received a $50 reward and “The Complete National Geographic” on DVD in recognition of his outstanding performance.
