Please join us – volunteer during the final Maker Movement of this school year: Tuesday April 19 to Thursday April 21 (1st grade – May 10, 11, 12).  All sessions will be lead by our technology teacher, Cindy Sanders, and held in the Discovery/Computer Lab.  We are hoping to have 4 parents in each class to support Mrs. Sanders by assisting small groups of children with hands-on-projects.

These sessions will build on the previous Maker Movement projects and will focus on circuits, Makey Makey and possibly some computer programming.  This is a great way to have fun and support your child’s learning experience on campus.  Please find your child’s class in Signup Genius and sign up to come explore science and technology with our inquisitive kids.

Sign up here to volunteer!
