Home of the Eagles
Vex Robotics on their way to Worlds!
You may remember our Robotics team from last year. They made GISD news earlier this school year with their performances at local competitions and again with their most recent victories. They are continuing in their usual Austin Excellence way and have qualified for Worlds again this year. They have competed against high school level teams and teams ranked internationally and have come away victorious. As they prepare for their last challenge as AAE Eagles, we wish them well in their preparations and the best of luck in their final competition.
Book Bytes Trailer contest
GISD Library Services sponsored their annual Books Bytes Trailer Contest. Austin Academy submitted several entries and we are happy to highlight an entry by 6th grader, Renata G. She is advertising "Fire Girl"; the book is about a young teen that is burned in a fire.
