“Where’s the snack???” That is what the kids say every week when they come in for practice. If you have not signed up for our shared snack…please consider taking a week. The sign up is at the top of the webpage. Thank you!
Our Water Rocket team needs all types of 2 liter bottles for their rocket design. Please send in empty bottles to Mrs. Jones. We will take them for the rest of the school year as the team needs MANY bottles. Thank you!
The T-shirts are here…so we have the photographer here again on Monday for the yearbook picture. The kids should know about this since we discussed it on Monday of this week. I have the t-shirts in my class and will distribute on Monday afternoon before the picture. Practice will resume immediately after the picture is taken. Enjoy the weekend!
Our team picture for the yearbook will be taken on Monday the 22nd at 2:45 in my classroom (#324).
Our team photo will be taken on January 22 at 2:45 in Mrs. Jones’ classroom. If your child doesn’t usually practice on Mondays, please have him/her come. Students can practice with partners for events and then stay until 3:30 or you can leave with parents after the picture. I’ll have cookies and juice for the kids as a snack.
Our team shirts should be in by that date…hopefully!
Everyone loves a “snow day”….unless there is an amazing group of students planning to meet that day! Our pizza party / debriefing session will need to be postponed for now. Next week is a holiday – so no practice. My classroom is available after school for supervised practices. Please let me know if you want to schedule a practice on another day until we get back to our regular Monday practices. Monday practices will resume on January 22.
I’m sure that all students are working hard at home to practice and study their events. Thank you for taking time to ensure they are getting ready for our first competition on March 24th…it is right around the corner!
I am so very proud of the work the team is doing to prepare for our competitions! I have seen great team work, communication, collaboration, and self-motivation in all students. THANK YOU to the amazing parents who are coaching this year. I know how much time this involves and appreciate you! Here are some important messages/information for parents and students:
Competition Dates: March 24th (Walton High) and May 12 (KSU)
T-shirt order forms were sent home today and are due by December 18th
No Science Olympiad on December 18th – Have a wonderful winter break!
January 8th will be a “progress meeting” instead of a practice day. ALL members should plan to attend from 2:30 -3:30 for a time to share our progress, get to know each other better, and to have some pizza and drinks. There will be a $2 cost for pizza and drinks. If parent coaches can come…that would be great too!
Due to early release and parent/teacher conferences, there will be no organized practice on Monday, October 16th. We will resume the following week. Thanks!
Thank you to all of the students and parents who came to practice on Monday! I think it went well. The first few practices are always a bit bumpy. Once the kids get more comfortable with their events and expectations, they tend to soar.
Thank you for the snack donation…BIG hit! If you have not signed up for snack, please do so using the link on this site.
The Water Rocket team is in need of 2 liter COKE product bottles. Please send in your empty/clean bottles to Mrs. Jones’ classroom. Thank you!
I’ll be attending a coaches meeting this week and will send out any new or updated information as needed.
