Even in the dreary weather, the sound of buzzing permeated the air at the state quiz bowl meet on April 27. The Griffin team faced off with Gretna in the first round, but lost 25-45. From the consolation bracket, the team battled back and outscored Gering 25-20 and then Valentine 60-35. By then the Griffins had the mojo going for them and they flew past HTRS 45-15. In a close match with Norris, Diller-Odell won 40-35 and took their place in the top 6. The team arrived at their next match against Bellevue East and was eliminated after a tight game that ended 30-35. The students who represented Diller-Odell were Katie Schultis, Cody Scheele, Paige Arnold, Adam Schultis, Joslyn Edmond and Spencer Schmidt. In order to qualify for this event, teams had to finish in first or second place in their respective ESU quiz bowl. The 29-team contest was held at the Phelps County Museum and hosted by ESU 11.

Everyone at Diller-Odell shared in learning about Autism during the 2016 focus from April 18 – 22. At the elementary school a t-shirt logo contest was held among Circle of Friends members and Mad Meyerle’s design was selected to represent the school wide event. Elementary students kicked off the week with a pledge, informational program, fact game and balloon release which were all planned and carried out by the Circle of Friends members. The celebration was topped off with blue puzzle shaped cookies provided by Julie Klecan. Through out the week student readers shared books that promoted respect, understanding and patience for all differences. Students learned through autism guidance lessons to celebrate everyone’s own kind of awesome. Blue and autism t-shirts colored the halls on Thursday and blue lights have illuminated the elementary building through out the month of April.
Mrs. Gegg, our high school Spanish instructor, and Katie Schultis, a Spanish III student, joined our 3rd grade reading class to read one of our stories "Pepita Talks Twice". The story is written in English and Spanish. It was exciting to hear it in Spanish and to get to learn how the high school students are using the things they learn in the real world! Thank you Katie and Mrs. Gegg!
On April 13, the team traveled to Thayer Central to compete in the ESU 5 quiz bowl competition. In the first round they defeated Fairbury A, advanced to round two and sent Meridian B to the loser’s bracket. After a close match with Bruning-Davenport, Diller-Odell sank to the loser’s bracket where they cruised past Fairbury B and Beatrice A. They had a rematch with Bruning-Davenport, which ended in a Griffin victory and a place in the championship. After a tough battle, the junior high team walked away with the runner up silver medals. Congratulations to the Diller-Odell A team members: Melina Kostal, Neleigh Weers, Emily Swanson, Addison Heidemann and Connor Klecan.
