Davidson High School Software Programming Students competed in the Congressional APP Challenge by creating an Android APP that allows the user to compute factors related to changing tire sizes on a vehicle. The factors included tire size changes and how different sizes can affect speed and fuel consumption.
The APP was built by 4 students who took Software Programming last Spring and then returned to Software II this Spring. Results of the competition won't be announced until June 18. We will keep you posted!

MGM Seniors Tyler Rainwater & Tyler Ollhoft Class of 2014 while attending TL Faulkner CTC under the Instruction of Tim J DeVargas built a light house memorial. The Dixon Elem. staff wanted to do something special for some students they had tragically lost during a vehicle accident. The cross bars would contain a plaque with the students’ names engraved. The rays of the lighthouse contain a quote:
"Dixon Elementary remembers special people who cast light on our path." The light house was mounted outside in the atrium facing the gymnasium.
