Congrats to our SEL Bus Drivers

SEL recently competed among several surrounding districts for bus driver bragging rights.  Participating this year were Helene Pinti, Pam Hrouda, Terri Brown and Joe Liptow.   These drivers practiced for weeks scouring over handbooks and references for the 100 written question test and spent numerous hours at the administration building practicing their driving skills. 133 drivers signed up for an exhausting challenging day in Solon. Six representatives will compete in the State Road-E-O competition held in Columbus May 7th, 2016. Helene Pinti will attend from SEL after placing 2nd at regionals. Helene is one of our On Board training instructors. This will be her 3rd time competing at a higher level of difficulty. Congratulations and THANK YOU to all of our fabulous bus drivers.

AP Physics Students Visit Lubrizol Corporation

On Tuesday, April 5th, Brush juniors and seniors from Mr. Daniel Trentanelli’s AP Physics classes visited the Lubrizol Corporation in nearby Wickliffe. The visit was an opportunity for students to network with professionals in various STEM careers, including mechanical engineering, analytical chemistry, chemical engineering and organic chemistry. In addition, students had a behind the scenes look at the wide range of operations and experiments conducted at Lubrizol.
