HPS Mission 18 Patch Submission

High Plains School hosted two Mission Patch Competitions. Both competitions challenged students to design and create a patch to commemorate our participation in 2023-2024 SSEP Mission 18 to the ISS. The first competition had 311 students grades K-5 who submitted a design. 4th and 5th grade submissions also included 3-D printed replicas. The winner for the first competition was 2nd grader Jackson Martin. The second competition had 100 Middle School students grades 6-8 submit a design. Submissions included both hand drawn and computer graphic designed works. The winner is 8th grader Emerson Lamar. We were honored to have judges from our broader community and school district help make final selections!

4th Grade presenters with Senator Marchman
Senator Marchman

Our 4th Graders were able to visit the Capitol Building in Denver. Once there they were able to meet with Senator Marchman. We are proud of our 4th graders advocating for an end to distracted driving. They were able to present to Senator Marchman the difference they would like to make. What a great PBL and experience for our 4th graders. Thank you Senator Marchman for taking time to meet with them.
