Design and Build a solar powered car that will complete a race in the shortest possible time. Fridays during Learning Lab – March 6 into May in Mr. GR’s room (if you're in 6th grade) or Mr. Boardman's room (if you're in 5th grade). 7th and 8th graders should see Ms. Winne.
The school will provide some building materials, but students will be expected to bring in and use scrounged or recycled stuff for car bodies.
When the club ends, students will need to return motors, motor clips, alligator clips, battery packs, and solar panels, as these get re-used from year to year.
The school race will be in early May. The top five school teams will be eligible to travel with their parents to compete at the State Championships, Saturday, June 6 in Owls Head.
See Mr. GR, Mr. Boardman, Ms. Hanna, or Ms. Winne for individual registration forms.
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.

The PTSA will hold its annual Holiday Craft fair
We will have the following crafts:
at the Conner Emerson Library. Children can make Holiday themed crafts.
The craft fair is from . Please note that this is also the day of the Scholastic Book fair (in the cafeteria) from 2-7.
Following the craft fair there will be the December meeting of the PTSA at , also at the library.
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: http://goo.gl/forms/ri307vAfxe.
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: email@example.com.
