1: Team E5 posing with their award-winning project which brought them into the Top 5 in Texas Instrument's National Engineering Competition
As many of you already know, our 10th grade engineers have been competing in a nationwide coding contest sponsored by Texas Instruments. ONE OF OUR TEAMS HAS ADVANCED TO THE FINALS!!! This means they are now in the TOP FIVE based on the design of their prototype and the video they made to showcase it.
They have done all of the hard work, now we need your help to get them to first place. The top prize is determined by a popular online vote. You (and everyone you know!) can vote once per day (validated by your email address) from now until the contest closes at 11:59 pm Central Time on June 22nd. That means we can all vote 16 times (and we will need everyone to do just that in order to win!) before Texas Instruments tallies the results.
4 steps to vote:
- Visit https://education.ti.com/en/promotion/codescontest
- Select Team E5 (that's us!)
- Enter your name and email (just for verification, no spam!)
- Repeat! (You should vote daily through June 22nd!)

Rabbi Simon will be teaching a class for the entire community at Congregation Adat Yeshurun this Shabbat. The class will take place after kiddush, and we hope you'll join him!
3: SCY High alums hanging out at the Yeshivat Ohr Dovid dormitory in Israel
Each year a larger percentage of our alumni choose to spend a gap year in Israel. We couldn't be more proud of the many alums who are wrapping up their year of study at the finest Yeshivot throughout the country! We're sending another batch - get ready, Israel!
4: Visiting alums getting aliyot to the Torah at davening this week
With the academic year drawing to a close, we've had the incredible opportunity of being visited by so many alums who are back from Yeshiva, University, and Yeshiva University :) As so many of them have told us, time and time again, "you never really leave SCY High" Although you can graduate and leave the building, SCY High is something that stays with your for the rest of your life and that is why so many of our alums join us for davening, learning, and just come hang out when they're back in town. We love seeing them!
