Camp Invention!

Dear Parents –

Many of you ask about additional learning opportunities for your children. If you have not heard, we are hosting Camp Invention June 12-15, 2017 at Sedalia Park Elementary. Camp Invention is a fun, innovative and creative program that any student in my class will enjoy!

During the program, children will transform the terrain and ecosystem of a distant exoplanet, take risks as future entrepreneurs, blast rockets and rubber chickens, and wire a circuit to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Box! Check out this video to see highlights: https://youtu.be/9OiFeEzgJwA.

And if you are anything like me, this comment from another parent might be helpful:

“There aren’t many programs that really challenge (my 6-year-old son’s) thinking. He is an introvert who prefers to stay home but he was so excited for camp each day! He made new friends and says he wants to go every year! I’ve never been so happy with a program for bringing this out in my son! Thank you!”

You can save $25 by registering on or before March 20th at www.campinvention.org using the promo code JUST4U. Please let me know if you have any questions. The program is being taught by local teachers and I will happily put you in contact with the Director.

Thank you,

Ms. Stegall

Update…

Food Finder GA

 

FoodFinderGA is a free smartphone app developed by a Georgia public school graduate. It is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play right now (search: foodfinderga). The app creates a 100% anonymous, direct connection between students who need food with their closest free food provider. Both the FoodFinderGA app and the website – www.foodfinderga.org – are year-round resources, but data shows a dramatic increase in use when school is out of session, and the need for food is greatest.
