Robotics Club Starts Soon

posted Jan 13, 2015, 6:56 AM by Sarah Winne   [ updated Jan 13, 2015, 6:57 AM ]

Robotics Club will begin on Tuesday, January 27 and run through April 14 (our showcase presentation afternoon). It will meet every Tuesday in the French Room from 3:00 to 4:15.

Any interested student, in grades 4 - 8, may participate; however, keep in mind that this is not a lego club. It is for students that are sincerely interested in building AND PROGRAMMING a sturdy robot that can meet challenges that include following lines and completing tasks.  Students will need to work in teams of 2 to 4, not alone. Flexibility and compromise skills are essential.

There is a limit of 20 students, due to materials and space. Any student with two unexcused absences will be removed from the club roster.

After School Crafts - Wednesday, December 17 and Thursday, December 18

posted Dec 2, 2014, 7:02 AM by Siobhan Ryan   [ updated Dec 3, 2014, 5:34 AM ]

Dear Families,

As you know, the Library traditionally hosts crafts offered by teachers and staff in the month of December.  This year, we are going to do it a little differently.  We are offering two days of crafts, Wednesday, December 17 and Thursday, December 18 from 3-4 PM for grades 1-8. Kindergarten will be doing their own crafts in school with their classes. We are unsure of the crafts that will be offered these days, but if you would like your child to participate please sign up Monday, December 8:

After you have signed up for your best day, we’ll send information on the crafts we expect to be offered that day so that children can choose their top two choices. This will help our volunteers know how many children to plan for.  

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Ryan. Email is best:

Thank you,

Ms. Ryan
