Odyssey of the Mind Team advances to State Competition
Congratulations to the Wake Forest Odyssey of the Mind teams that competed in Regional competition on March 7. All of our teams placed and one team finished first for their problem to advance and represent us in the State Tournament at Appalachian State University on April 11. Details are below:
Problem Synopsis: The problem is to design, build, and demonstrate various devices that complete specific tasks. The team will create a theme where technical failures must be resolved through completing the tasks. There will be a list of tasks to choose from including ring a bell, change the wording on something, sound an alarm, move an object, etc. There will also be a mysterious engineer character. Of course, there’s a twist — all of the devices must be powered by rubber bands! Also, everything used must fit inside two suitcases, dimensions not exceeding 4' x 3' x 9"
Congratulations to all three teams and to Ms. Marie Jones for representing WFHS so well!!!!
VIP for A VIP is a special senior event. This event will happen on April 2, 2015.
Wake Forest High School and other local emergency service agencies will present a "VIP for a VIP Program", at Wake Forest High School, on April 2, 2015
Over 40% of teen deaths occur in motor vehicle accidents. Most of these are the result of a poor driving decision and are preventable.
On Thursday, April 2, 2015, Wake Forest fire Department, Wake County EMS, Wake Forest Police Department, NC Highway Patrol, NC Wildlife and other sponsors will present an informative, moving program for young adult drivers and their families in an effort to prevent future tragedies.
The VIP for a VIP program (Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person) consists of testimony form area emergency services, video and powerpoint presentations in the school auditorium at 9:00 am, followed by an outside reenactment of a fatal teen accident at 1:00 pm in the activity bus parking lot. Students and parents are encouraged to complete and return the "VIP Contract for Life" (Senior students will receive a copy), which asks the student to adhere to safe driving, a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol, and calling a parent before driving impaired. The parent is asked to respond respectfully to assure the student gets home safely.
This program is dedicated to the students that have lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents across North Carolina. We sincerely believe that the strong message of the VIP for a VIP program will embed the consequences of dad driving habits into the minds of teenage drivers and reduce the senseless accidents in our community.
For more information on the VIP for a VIP program, contract Teresa Madden at 919-291-5876
