See the Friarbots compete in the Los Angeles FIRST Robotics Competition, March 16-17
The Los Angeles First Robotics Competition will take place on March 16-17 at the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach. The Friarbots, FIRST Team 3309 from Servite, Connelly, and Rosary, will compete with its robot along with over 1500 students from 66 high school teams.

Dubbed a "varsity sport of the mind," FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources and a six-week time limit, students are challenged to raise funds, build and program a life-size robot and learn about teamwork.

The Friarbots, FIRST Team 3309 built a robot that shoots hoops. This year's game, "Rebound Rumble," is played between two alliances of three teams each. Each Alliance competes by trying to score as many of the basketballs in the hoops as possible during the two-minute and 15-second match. Balls scored in higher hoops score teams more points. Team alliances are awarded bonus points if they are balanced on bridges at the end of the match.

The FIRST Robotics Competition is an exciting, multinational competition where teams of professionals and high school students work together to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. The competitions are high-tech spectator sporting events, the result of lots of focused brainstorming, real-world teamwork, dedicated mentoring, project timelines, and deadlines.  Ultimately, the robot is just a vehicle for spreading the message of FIRST, which is to inspire other students and shre that "smart is the new cool."

The entire Servite, Connelly, and Rosary community is invited to attend this free, high-energy, event. In addition to watching matches, spectators of all ages are invited to join teams on the arena floor to get up close with the robots and see their engineering know-how firsthand. Our team will update Facebook (www.facebook.com/friarbots) and Twitter (@ServiteRobotics) frequently with new updates and let you know when we're going out for a match!  Learn more at the team website, www.serviterobotics.org and on Connelly's Robotics Club page.

The competition takes place March 16, 9 a.m. - 6:45 p.m. and March 17, 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. DON'T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR CONNELLY GEAR!! Attendees are encouraged to come and go as they wish during this two-day event. The Long Beach Arena is at 300 East Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90802.

    Connelly Junior launches canned food drive to culminate at Mater Dei v Servite game Oct. 29
       Connelly Junior Alexine Gallagher is leading a canned food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank, Orange County again this year. It will culminate with a collection at the Mater Dei v Servite football game on Oct. 29. Barrels are on the Connelly, Rosary, Servite and Mater Dei campuses for canned food collections.
        Last year, Alexine organized the drive that collected 316 pounds of canned food for the Irvine-based assistance organization. Alexine said she doesn't have a specific goal, but would like to exceed last year's donations. The Connelly Family of students, faculty, staff and supporters is encouraged to donate canned food to help feed Orange County's hungry and impoverished families. Additional collection barrels and a large truck will be at Angel's Stadium for the Oct. 29 game, Alexine said.
       According to Second Harvest Food Bank 1 in 6 Orange County residents is at risk of hunger. The increased unemployment rate means more families are struggling. More than a third of those at-risk of hunger in Orange County are children. Children account for 35% of the 615,000 individuals in Orange County that have to worry about going to bed hungry.
       For more information about Second Harvest Food Bank, Orange County and stories about real families that YOU can help with your donation, go to

    Community  Compassion  CONNELLY
    Connelly's students continue to reach out and help others
    Students raised $545.50 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients program. Connelly rallied in groups by graduating year to compete in Penny Wars. Each grade level gathered money in large jugs. The entire proceeds were donated.

    Each grade level put pennies in a jug marked with their year, but other classes were allowed to put silver coins or bills into those jugs to cancel out the cash equivalent in pennies collected. All four classes succeeded in cancelling the pennies collected and all four classes ended with negative balances - collect more cash and silver coin than pennies. The Senior class won with the least negative total of $65.95.
