Our AP Computer Science Principles class went on a field trip to see how computer science can be utilized in a career.  Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) designs and produces ROVs to conduct ocean research in our Monterey Bay. Chris Wahl is the LRAUV Lead Operations Engineer and gave us a tour of his department, specifically discussing programming and robotics in his field.  AP CSP is meant to be a gateway class to encourage more students into careers in computer science and it involves a unit on Creative Development which is employed in the lab at MBARI.

Being a small school means that our sports teams ebb and flow. Varsity Girls Soccer was dormant for several years, until a group of enthusiastic players--many of them freshman--decided to assemble a team for the 2024 season. Athletic Director, Abby Christopher, likes to say "Heck Yeah" when student athletes come to her with hopes of introducing, or in this case, reintroducing a sports team to Kirby.

It's a good thing, too, because this team went undefeated in their trial, non-league season! We are so proud of their tenacity. If you didn't make it to a game this season, catch them in 2025 when they will officially join the Pacific Coast Athletic League.
