Moving on to the even more exciting stuff:
I woke up this morning to two VERY exciting emails! A Williston Northampton team has been accepted into both the HMMT and PUMaC competitions! We are very lucky to have gained entrance into the competitions as each had more applications than ever!
I need each of you to reconfirm which event(s) you can attend. Please use this form to resend me your information. Please fill out this form by Monday, 10/20 at 3pm.
Some of you have already sent me information regarding which events you can attend. Please use the above form to resubmit your information. Feel free to submit different information if your circumstances have changed. It is possible that some people will be allowed to attend both competitions. Also, I will possibly have limited space for people to attend as a non-participant and work as my “assistants”. We’ll act as the cheering section for our team!
