Congratulations to the HIS Robotics teams for their outstanding performance at the East Oahu VEX Robotics Competition this past weekend. Team 394B ranked 4th and made it all the way to the semi finals. Team 394 was the Tournament Champion and was the Programming Skills Winner, winning them a qualification to the CREATE US Open Robotics Championship in Iowa.

Please note the No Left Turn signs entering and exiting HIS during the morning and afternoon hours. Traffic on Hoolaulea Street is very heavy during these times and creates a hazardous situation when trying to make the left turn. Thank you!
