Announcements 1-10-13

News from Tech Ed

In Tech Ed we have been building and programming robots to operate parts of our green city.  The 7th and 8th students have been challenged to figure out how to make precise programs that turn on the windmill, place the solar panel on the house or pick up the garbage.  They not only have to program their robot, they also have to build parts that are the right fit to accomplish these challenges.  Some robots do go astray and have been known to knock over the windmill or other robots!


5th and 6th grade Jr. Band is rehearsing today at 12:15.

Drama students are allowed to bring a snack to practice, but PLEASE make sure the snacks are peanut free. We have a student with allergies in the cast. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Rehearsals are going well. Students should practice at home with their CD's and books. They will also be performing a few songs on our Unified Arts Night on January 29th. I will send a letter home with more details regarding this event. Thank you very much.
