Predisys Donates to VEX Robotics
New England business Predisys Inc has made an extremely generous $800 donation to the VEX Robotics Club at Pinkerton Academy. Predisys produces Quality Control and Analysis software. Ari Pihlajavesi, President and Owner, says VEX prepares students to enter the engineering fields.
Pihlajavesi’s contribution is also based on his observation that programming and building of robots enhances STEM coursework in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (“STEM”) and helps students gain “real world knowledge using problem based learning.”
Update on Hooksett School District
Pinkerton Academy and the Hooksett School District continue to discuss a partnership for the 2014-2015 school year. Monday night, Pinkerton conducted an Open House for area families, primarily those from Hooksett as that community is considering its options for high school education of its residents.
Approximately 120 people attended the Open House with almost three-quarters of the group taking tours following a presentations by Headmaster Mary Anderson and Chris Harper, Dean of Academic Affairs. Tours were conducted by members of the Student Council at Pinkerton Academy.
In a recent statement to news media, Harry Burnham, President, Board of Trustees said “Pinkerton Academy would very much like to serve as the anchor school of the Hooksett school district; we welcome the opportunity to provide Hooksett families with the high quality instruction, curriculum, programs and facilities of our school.”
“In the past year,” continued Burnham, “we have toured hundreds of Hooksett parents and students so we’re aware of tremendous interest by Hooksett families in Pinkerton. We believe this can be a wonderful partnership so we’d like to work with the Hooksett School Board to best serve the interests of the community's students, parents, and taxpayers.”
The Men & Women of Movember - for the last time!
Brave Pinkerton men (and their families) took the Movember challenge last month, raising over $4,000 in support of men's health!
The nation-wide movement began on November 1st with 60 clean-shaven members of the Pinkerton community and ended Monday, December 2nd with 60 not-so-clean-shaven members - all sporting unique, signature mustaches.
Also joining the group were women (and even some men) who earned a fake mustache by contributing to the cause. Click on the photo at left to see “The Pinkerton Stashtros."
Special honors went to Jeff Sojka (front row, third from right): Jeff won the first-ever "Golden Mustache" award for getting the most donations with his creative new look. The inaugural Movember project at Pinkerton was spearheaded by John Vaccarezza, Associated Dean.
