CONGRATULATIONS LEGO TEAMS!
CES is so proud of both of our school Lego League and Jr. Lego League teams. The Great Eight, our 4th grade team, did a terrific job of competing in their Regional against teams in grades 4-8. The Life Savers Jr. Lego League team earned the Rising Star award at their regional event. The Rising Star award is for a team that goes above and beyond in their research and presentation.
