Female students Rachel Lee, Ashley Shaaf, Sara Takubo, and Brianna Jacobson formed the team "GirlsJustWannaCode" to participate in the "Girls Go CyberStart Challenge" and placed 10th out of 168!  The contest has each team trying to solve as many of the CyberStart Challenges as possible prior to the February 25th deadline.

When asked about the contest prior to the results, Mrs. Ricca noted: "They (the girls) have dedicated numerous hours so far.  We are not sure where they will end up, but I'm super proud of them!"  Most of the content in the challenge is new to the students, but the challenge seems to motivate them.  Further, the challenges get progressively harder as the students complete them.

Pascack Valley is proud of the initiative and innovation of these young ladies.  We also applaud the efforts of Mrs. Ricca for encouraging and supporting these students through this challenge.
