Yoga in School

We are thrilled to have the Karma Kids Yoga program share the benefits of yoga with the 6th grade! 

YogaHersheyKiss  Hershey Kiss Pose

Twice every week, students get on the yoga mat to stretch and strengthen their bodies, learn important breathing exercises and relaxation techniques as well as learn tools to help navigate the teen years.  They’re learning basic and challenging poses, group and partner poses, and participate in activities that build confidence and self-esteem, focus and concentration, community, and a sense of well-being and calm.

By the second class, all students were challenging themselves with arm balances (great for building core strength and confidence) and partner flying planks (builds core and back strength, teamwork).  They all enjoyed deep relaxation time with the scent of lavender.

Namaste.

Robotics Club News

Robotics team planning out robot route

SOF RC, our HS Robotics Club, participated in the second qualifier of the Robotics citywide competition, First Tech Challenge. The event took place at Dalton School on Sunday, February 19th and gathered 24  robotics teams from public and private schools who competed to qualify in the 2016/2017 NYC Robotics Championship.

As a rookie team we did well against experienced teams.  Our students built a fast robot that scored points each game by hitting the beacon buttons on the challenge field.  During Match 2 one wheel fell off but our robot was able to still move to finish up the round.

Coach/Mentor: Mr. Irimina and Jim Chin

SOF RC student participants: Henry Ramos (12 & Team Coordinator), Nick Wood (12), Alden Radoncic (12), Van James Huynh (11), Thomas Zuckerman (10), Ethan Ng (10), Allen Delgado (10), Carson Koppel (10), Farhath Anzum (9), Celina Niemann (9), and Anwesha Dhara (9).

Goals for the remainder of this year and next is to design a lift mechanism, learn more programming.
The Robotic Club meets: after school every Monday and Wednesday in room 103.

Go SOF RC!
