We are proud to announce Ms. Violeta Ojeda as our JH Teacher of the Year. She works tirelessly to make sure her students achieve all the success they can in the classroom. She is teaching bilingual 1st-grade language arts and social studies but has experience in other primary grade levels as well. Her dedication to students always learning has been admired for years by many of us here at John Haley, many students, and in the community.

Once again John Haley will be participating in the annual virtual robotics competition held via Edmodo with schools in Lewisville, Flower Mound, Irving ISD, and India. We are excited to introduce some of the students participating this year into our problem-based learning project. One of our teams placed 2nd last year. We are excited to see the ideas this year's group will produce.
"Consider how robots have changed our world. One small invention can completely change how we live or interact with each other. No matter how large or life-changing an invention is, it starts with a very small concept: an idea. Every great invention started as a thought in someone's head. Many inventions have resulted from ideas generated by kids! Kids thought of better ways to do things, and they were able to put their ideas into action. You are the next generation of innovators! What are some problems that you would like to solve with an invention?"
Thank you to all the parents who have allowed their children to stay for this program by making special arrangements each day we meet. We are excited to see the ideas our students will come up with and the models they will create.
