For our Welcome Back Activity, the WEB Leadership students planned a creative party! Students played musical chairs, guessing games, giant tic-tac-toe, volleyball, basketball, and ring toss! They danced with DJ music, decorated with face paint, and ate pizza. It was a great way to celebrate the beginning of our school year!

On Sept. 9, the Oak Valley Robotics teams kicked off the 2023-24 season along with the Robotics teams from White Lake Middle School and Muir Middle School. This is the first year Huron Valley Middle School Robotics teams have joined together for sharing and support. After a pizza lunch, the students met the coaches and high school mentors, then saw an exciting video detailing the First Tech challenge and rules for this year. Later they broke into school teams and discussed the tasks they will be working on. Design and Building, Programming, and Marketing are the main components of Robotics. The students will be collaborating and cooperating to fulfill their goals and be ready for their first competition this fall.
