Hey students of PA, if you are looking to cut off 8 inches of your hair, you can help change a life. Donate your locks to Children with Hair Loss, giving you and some one else a new hair-do. The big chop will take place during Winter Carnival where your act of kindness will be recognized by the school. Come sign up and find out more at Key Club's “Cut it for a Cause” table in the back of the cafeteria during lunch!

The road started for Pembroke Academy robotics last April with the introduction of the Starstruck VEX Robotics game. We had a competition two days after school got out for the year. After a few work days during the Summer, the competition season began and we traveled to Trinity, Kennett, Cape Elizabeth ME, Pembroke, Belmont, back to Trinity, North Andover MA, and finished back at Pembroke. The results were - all 11 teams qualified for the State Championship, 4 teams registered for the US Open, a record breaking 74 awards, and 134D, Justin and Tyler Smith, shattered all previous records ending the season with 84 wins and 4 losses.
Now the big event is here! The NH/VT State Championship at Manchester Community College this Saturday from 9-4. Please come, cheer us on, and see how many of the 5 available spots for the VEX World Championship your Pembroke teams can bring home. It will not be easy because 40 of the best teams in the Northeast will have the same idea!!
