Hope and Opportunity through Catholic Education
St. Anthony-Immaculate Conception School hosted a First Lego League Qualifying Tournament, Mission: Track Trek 2015, on Saturday, Nov. 21.
Fifteen Bay Area teams competed in the robotics event, including teams from SAIC and Saint James School. Albert Bricker, technology coordinator for both schools, was the tournament director, and dozens of parents served as volunteer judges and workers.
Children from 80 countries are participating in the 2015 Trash Trek Challenge. Students, ages 9-14, design, build and program Lego robots to solve the problem of trash collection, sorting, composting, recycling.
“Teams are judged on their projects, robotics and how well they demonstrate the First Lego League (FLL) core values, which include cooperation, discovery and the spirit of friendly competition,” Bricker said.
Winners of this qualifying tournament advance to a regional championship. The season ends with the FLL World Festival in April in St. Louis. Although the Vision of Hope school teams did not advance, “Our teams performed extremely well as rookies,” Bricker said. “In meeting this educational challenge, all kids are winners.”

When I was young and attended Saint James, it was a place of peace and nourishment for me, so I am sending you a small donation to help you carry out this Saint James tradition. I know you will use these funds to carry out the spirit of the school and help some needy children.
Cabrini was definitely my home away from home. It has played a tremendous role in the woman I am today. My teachers always pushed me to be all that I was able to be.
I am grateful for the education that my children earned here. I have many fond memories of the children I taught, and every so often I see one of them who reminds me of a special event. All these memories I will forever cherish.
