Monday's Fun Fact: Did you know that George Washington was born in Virginia on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, however, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved Washington's birthday a year and 11 days to February 22, 1732.

Friday's School Celebration Amboy Junior High School Submitted by: Ms. Sarah Land, AJHS Science Teacher Students at Amboy Junior High win runner up in STEM game designing competition! For a week in November, science students participated in a nationwide competition put on by Legends of Learning.

After reviewing thousands of submissions, their team of judges believed these students' creativity of their game design concept and their ability to blend community engagement into the game mechanics were superb. So CONGRATULATIONS to team Cyber Explorers (Henry Nichols, Carli Grennan, Anthony Linder, Michael Ackert, and Gavin Nichols). They will be receiving a gift card as well as a merch bag from the ESA foundation, along with their bragging rights!
