I know that this is a crazy time of year and that life gets especially stressful. As our event draws closer I am more and more thankful for the stress release of seeing our students so deeply engaged, working cooperatively, laughing, and loving STEM.  THANK YOU for going above and beyond and for providing this amazing opportunity for your students!

Coach and Logistics Meeting 5/2/16

In preparation for our May 21st, 2016 tournament,  I am hosting a New Hanover Science Olympiad Coach and Logistics meeting. The Team Coach or a representative from your school/Team is invited to attend on Monday, May 2, 2016 3:30-4:30 at BOE-Large Meeting room (1805 South 13th Street, Wilmington, NC)

It is important that all coaches attend, as we will be discussing logistics for this year's tournament, reviewing policies and procedures, and answering any questions you might have. We will also be introducing each of you to the new scoring program and team roster procedures.  It is crucial that everyone (Coaches, Teams, Administrators, Parents, and Volunteers)  hear/receive the same information so that we can set ourselves up for an amazing day, and avoid confusion and disqualifications.  If you can not attend, please designate a proxy to attend in your absence.
I hope 2016 is off to a great start. I look forward to meeting with you all.  As always, if you have any questions or issues, do not hesitate to contact me. If I don't have an answer, I will try my best to find one for you. 
Please remeber to keep up with the posted  EVENT CLARIFICATIONS on the Events Resources Page
