Congratulations to Hellen Caro's Odyssey of the Mind Team!
This is the first year that Hellen Caro participated in the Odyssey of the Mind Program. Our Fifth Grade Team placed 3rd overall in the regional competition in Crestview with their Long-Term Problem, Runaway Train.
Hellen Caro's team was also awarded the Ranatra Fusca Creativity Award.  This is the highest award and honor in the Odyssey of the Mind program.  This award is presented to a team who exhibits exceptional creativity.  This award is not always given at the competition.  It is very rare for it to be given at the elementary level. The judges were very impressed by the creative ways in which the team incorporated their theme into every aspect of the presentation, vehicle, tracks, costumes, and sets.  This award allowed our Hellen Caro Team the opportunity to participate at the state level in Orlando on April 11th.  Our awesome team finished #12 in the ENTIRE state of Florida!  Way to Go Team!!!
A very BIG thank you to Mrs. Gardner and Mrs. Quinlan for sponsoring this wonderful opportunity for our boys and girls.  We am very proud of all of them!
