Sophomore Lawrence Sun selected for U.S. physics team

Send by email
Way to go, Lawrence!

Lawrence is one of 20 finalists selected for the U.S. Physics Olympiad team. Each year, the American Association of Physics Teachers and the American Institute of Physics sponsor a competition for high school students to represent the United States at the International Physics Olympiad Competition.

The selection process began in early January when Lawrence took the F=ma exam. Approximately 400 top scorers on this first test advance to the semi-final round of competition.

The semi-final exam is used as the basis for selection of the 20 members of the U.S. Physics Team. These students, from schools all over the United States, travel to the University of Maryland-College Park at the end of May for the annual U.S. Physics Team Training Camp. There they engage in ten days of intense studying, testing, and problem solving.

At the end of that training camp, five students will be selected for the "Traveling Team." The Traveling Team will return for three additional days of intense laboratory work before they are ready for the International Event.

78 winning schools in 29 states and D.C. represent a diverse portfolio, includes 66 public and 12 private schools in urban and rural communities

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, together with White House Council on Environmental Quality chair Nancy Sutley and Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson, announced today that Catlin Gabel School, in Portland, Oregon, is among 78 schools named U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools. Oregon is among 29 states and D.C. with schools receiving the first-ever awards.

Four schools in Oregon received the award. In addition to Catlin Gabel, Portland’s Sunnyside Environmental School, Willamina Elementary School, and Gladstone High School were honored.

Catlin Gabel’s focus on sustainability extends from the classroom to its grounds and facilities. The school has had an aim since 2007 of generating zero waste, and every year has brought new initiatives—including a school garden and extensive composting—that has brought it closer to that goal.

“Science and environmental education play a central role in providing children with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the jobs of the future,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. “Green Ribbon Schools demonstrate compelling examples of the ways schools can expand their coursework while also helping children build real world skill sets, cut school costs, and provide healthy learning environments.”

U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools is a federal recognition program that opened in September 2011. Honored schools exercise a comprehensive approach to creating “green” environments through reducing environmental impact, promoting health, and ensuring a high-quality environmental and outdoor education to prepare students with the 21st-century skills and sustainability concepts needed in the growing global economy.

The 78 awarded schools were named winners of this one-year recognition from among nearly 100 nominees submitted by 30 state education agencies, the District of Columbia and the Bureau of Indian Education. More than 350 schools completed applications to their state education agencies. Among the list of winners are 66 public schools including 8 charters, and 12 private schools composed of 43 elementary, 31 middle and 26 high schools with around 50 percent representing high poverty schools.

Chris Skrapits selected assistant coach of the year

Send by email
Congratulations, Chris! You make us proud.

The Oregon Athletic Coaches Association has selected eighth grade science teacher and ace cross-country coach Chris Skrapits as the assistant coach of the year in Oregon for all sports categories in the 3A classification.

PE teacher and coach John Hamilton submitted this nomination:

Chris came to Catlin Gabel in 1996. He had been a cross-country runner during high school and college. Not long after starting to work on our campus he connected with me to see if he could participate in our team workouts. He became a frequent participant in many of our on campus sessions, and eventually began to join us for trail runs.

In 2004 we lost our assistant coach, and invited Chris to become an official part of our program. He was more than ready, and eagerly accepted the offer. Having him become a permanent member of our [coaching] staff has proved to be a huge boost to the program on many levels. He helps me organize the overview of the full season training schedule. He in charge of all our team warm-up drills prior to all training and racing sessions. This means his voice is the only one that the racers hear as they enter the chute on race day. He has continued to be an active participant in most of our training sessions and leads all the abdominal work at the end of each training session. I will ask him to step out of a session when I need his help with timing, or watching for form and tactical adjustments we might want to make. The entire team loves the energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, experience, and the joy he brings to the team.

During the eight years Chris has been with the team we have grown from 24 participants to 38, a 55% increase. More than 14% of Upper School students are on the cross-country team. During Chris’ tenure as assistant coach, the program has achieved a level of success that we had never before experienced. The team won seven out of eight district titles. Racing in Eugene at LCC, the Catlin Gabel team has finished in the top two for consecutive years, runners-up four times, and state champions four times.

 

Collins Foundation awards $200,000 for Creative Arts Center

Send by email
A big step closer to goal!

We are proud to announce that the Collins Foundation grant of $200,000 brings the total raised for the Middle and Upper School arts building to $4.27 million, or 62 percent of our total $6.9 million goal.

“The community support for this project is exhilarating,” said Lark Palma. “As one of the premier foundations in Oregon, the Collins Foundation’s endorsement of our quest to provide an innovative hub for creativity is most gratifying.”

The school must raise $1.25 million more to reach the magic 80 percent mark when we can break ground.

Stay tuned!
