Take Me There, Verizon app challenge winner
A team of seven freshmen at Tesla STEM High School was named Best in Nation in the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge competition. A representative from Verizon surprised the students on Feb. 15 with the announcement during an all-school gathering. Four high school teams in the country received the recognition. The students’ app concept, “Take Me There,” takes advantage of crowdsourcing to help users who need more detailed accessibility information in a mapping tool. Users can find out about walking distances and accessibility ramps, for example. This information can help disabled users of public transit understand what to expect. The students took top honors in Washington state and the Pacific region to be eligible for the national prize. To help them build a working app, the students will receive in-person coding training from MIT experts to turn their app idea into a reality this spring. They also received Verizon tablets and an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2017 National Technology Student Association Conference this summer. Tesla STEM will receive $20,000.

Attendance Matters: Every Minute Counts
If children don’t show up for school regularly, they miss out on fundamental reading and math skills and the chance to build a habit of good attendance that will carry them into college and careers. Preliminary data found that children who were chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade (missing two days of school per month) were far less likely to read proficiently at the end of third grade.

Granting us the chance to start over and endowing us with new time ahead." Senior Sean Miller said, "High school is giving us a blank check. All we have to do is cash it in by fulfilling our potential, that every single person in this room has I urge you guys don't waste the ability given us here. Don't let your potential fade." Graduate Zain Suleman said, "Thank you to the staff of Lake Washington High School for making high school an experience that I'll never forget.

Student speakers Kayla Henry and Lauren Peterson said, "We have grown to understand that high school graduation marks the ending of an era, full of lessons to take on our next adventure. So thank you teachers for the countless hours of dedication. Thank you sisters and brothers for that endless support and fights that make us love each other even more."
