Rachel Seevers and David Vulakh have been competing this week in Phoenix as part of the International Science and Engineering Fair as part of Team Kentucky. They did fantastic!
Rachel: Young Scientist Award (one of top three award winners), Best in Category, Physical Science first award, and the Shanghai STEM Cloud Center award. By my count she won close to $60000!
David: Physical Science third award, Air Force Research Laboratory, and United Technologies Corporation. He won close to $5000 in prizes!
We are proud of the hard work they put in and how they represented themselves and Dunbar. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them!
Congratulations to Matt Halpin for winning the 11th Region Tennis Singles Championship for the third straight year!
SENIOR BREAKFAST DONATIONS & VOLUNTEERS
Hi Senior Parents! It is a tradition at PLD for the parents of seniors to organize and provide a delicious, grab-and-go breakfast for the senior class following their graduation practice at Dunbar. The practice will be held at 8:30 am on May 31st. The breakfast will start around 10:30 am. We will be serving just under 550 students, so this is quite a task.
We need parents to help with food and monetary donations as well as help with setting-up, serving, and cleaning-up afterwards. Food can be brought to Dunbar the morning of the 31st, anytime between 8:30 and 9:30 am. Cash and checks can be brought anytime to the main office before May 30. Please place the monetary donation in an envelope labelled “Drew Whitley” and please make checks payable to “Sarah Mills”. Thank you so much for helping with this fun event.
