The application for our team has improved! The goal of the application process is to find team members that have problem solving skills, attention to detail, determination to complete a goal, and the ability to work well with others in a team environment. We will meet on April 18 from 9 to 12 in Ms. Parker’s room. You will need to choose a week from this year’s BESTology posts. When you arrive, we will divide you into working groups to complete an assignment from the BEST Connection portion of the BESTology week you choose. Over the next week, you will come in after school to present your group’s solution.
Team members will be chosen based on the quality of the work they demonstrate and the ability to work well with others. Download the application using the link below. Print and fill out the application. Turn it in to the box OUTSIDE Mr. Fletcher’s room by 3:00 pm on April 16. So that we know how many to expect for the live application.
