Senior School Robotics Whoa!Bots Team Earns an Impressive Finish
The Senior School Robotics team, named the Whoa!Bots, competed in the Southwestern Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge on Saturday, January 13. In a year of extraordinary growth, the Whoa!Bots fell just short of winning the tournament, earning a remarkable second place finish in the Finalist Alliance out of the 21 teams that entered the competition.
Students, faculty, staff, and Academy families gave generously to the Spirit of Giving Food Drive, which benefited St. Vincent de Paul’s Good Samaritan Food Pantry.
This year, the Academy raised $671.42 to purchase 35 12-pound turkeys from Safran's Supermarket in Sewickley at wholesale price. The balance was donated to help purchase perishable items for families in need. Donations from Sewickley Academy will make a difference in the lives of 45 families; the community’s generosity will carry their food needs throughout the month of December.
Lower School student counsel representatives, Middle School student council representatives, and Senior School students worked hard to pack and unpack three vans full of food.
Thank you to all who donated and helped make this event a success!
