Hot Lunch – Granite

RenWeb

We have a new grading data base that will be replacing Thinkwave. The new data base is called RenWeb. We will be sending you out information on how to access your child(ren), assignments, grades, attendance in the next few weeks. You will also be able to update all your family data information (emails, phone numbers, child allergies, emergency contact information, etc.) If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

Calling all Lego Leaguers!

The next season of First Lego League is upon us! The theme is HYDRO DYNAMICS. Watch an introductory video by clicking on this VIDEO link. We need to gauge how many students (5th-8th graders) are interested in competing this year – as well as any parents willing to help volunteer in coaching, mentoring, or simply helping out!

STUDENTS: If you are ready for a fun season with a lot of work to prepare for the competition – it involves three aspects, all judged equally: teamwork, a science-fair-type project, AND the Lego Robot competition. It’s a lot to do, but we came back with a trophy last year! You don’t need to be an engineer- you just need to be ready to work with your team!

PARENTS: We need not only tech-minded/engineering people. We need anyone who has an interest in helping our students succeed. It’s not all robotics – our team is judged EQUALLY on teamwork and the project presentation itself. Let me know of any interest from coaching, to field trip connections, to simply helping with taking photos throughout the season!
