Maple Hills Community,

We are so excited to share that our very own 4th graders Ella Wu and Daniel Grabowski are featured on the Issaquah Schools Foundation Facebook page. Starting 5 years ago, our very own Darcie Kardong received a grant from the ISF to purchase Beebots and when Ella, Daniel and other students were in Kindergarten they started learning how to use these Beebots. After continuing to fund additional Beebots and other technology, ISF interviewed students to see how working with Beebots had affected their lives years later, and then selected Daniel and Ella to share their experiences at the ISF annual fundraiser. Unfortunately, this year the fundraisers will not be happening live but the speeches will still be going on virtually so now we all have the opportunity to hear and see them.

Team Bee-Bots will be LIVE on May 20th at Noon via https://app.mobilecause.com/e/l3xBuw?vid=88knk.

Thank you ISF...Hooray for Team Bee-Bots!!
