Inspire

Parkview Center and Central Park students had the tremendous opportunity to hear an inspiring presentation by New York Times best-selling author Jason Reynolds. Reynolds, who was first drawn to reading and writing through rap music, writes young adult and middle-grade novels, including Ghost, a National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature. Among his many goals, Reynolds says he wants to write books about topics that didn't exist when he was growing up.

Solve

Roseville Area High School students participated in the first-ever Minnesota Digital Analytics competition and were named runners up! During the competition, students were given a large data set about video game sales to analyze. According to advisor Travis Birklid, "the competition is really about solving a puzzle, finding patterns in data that may not be obvious, and being able to 'tell a story' about the data."

Celebrate

Twelve RAHS students competed in the Minnesota State Speech Tournament, where the state’s top speakers compete for a championship title in one of 13 events. We are proud to announce that RAHS earned two of those championship titles: junior Jason Sobieck is the state champion of Serious Interpretation of Prose and juniors Kellin Robinson and Vakare Bartkaitis are the state champions of Duo Interpretation. Congratulations!
