The Xaverian computer club has been hard at work on their latest project - building a liquid-cooled computer. Most basic computers employ a fan cooling system, but the club has set out to build one that will be more efficient. Once completed, this computer will be used by students to design and print 3D models. The club has already installed the motherboard, memory modules, graphics card, and wiring. For more updates on the computer club visit the Xaverian clubs and activities page.

"We had one girl sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. They could not peek at what was being written.

Yet by mholtzen I started using the word “Yet” with my students a couple years ago. When a child says, “But I don’t get it,” or “I can’t do this,” which happens often in my land of perfectionists, I add the word, “Yet” to the end of their declaration.
