Congratulations to Ethan, who was awarded High Honors by the Johns Hopkins
Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Talent Search. He is very excited about
participating in CTY’s summer programs. Ethan qualified for these programs by
achieving high scores on both verbal and quantitative tests. His SCAT math score
ranked among the top 10 nationwide. His parents would like to thank both Mrs.
Liebes and Mrs. Paulson for their work with Ethan in math. His parents are very
proud of him, and they believe that Ethan could not have achieved this without the
education he obtained at The Wilson School!

A team from The Wilson School participated in the New Jersey Destination
ImagiNation Tournament. Team members, Eric (6th), Nicholas (6th),
Julius (5th), Euwen (4th) and Brooke (4th), worked very hard and
won third place in their competition titled IN THE ZONE.
The team designed and made ten vehicles out of three or more propulsion systems. Each vehicle was limited to 6″x6″x6″ max. size. The vehicles were propelled by 4 types of power: gravity, electric, pneumatic, wind-up. They had to launch all the vehicles through danger, get IN THE ZONE and stop. Then they performed a theatrical act (including singing, acting and writing original songs) to
tell a story of how these vehicles traveled. The team did it all by themselves with
only skill support (such as wood work, machine, soldering, and hot glue gun usage).
The kids competed in the middle school division while 2 out of 5 children are in elementary level, one of them had a full year acceleration.
Congratulations to the DiForce5 Team!
