Things are picking up speed as the end of the school year approaches. The School Council has many events in the next few weeks to let you know about, starting with tomorrow night’s School Council meeting from 7 – 8:30. The meeting will be held in the Music Room in the basement and free childcare is provided.
The agenda includes: Robotics and the new Parent Tech Subcommittee, Spring Festival, Parents Reaching Out Night with speaker Dona Matthews on June 9 and an update from the school. Hope to see you there!
What are Robotics? Here is a quick intro to the topic. On Friday May 13, the first ever Earl Haig Robotics kits were broken open by some very eager students. We were lucky to have Annika Pint, FIRST Robotics Administrator join us to demo what our new EV3 Robots could do. In the early spring, 5 EV3 Lego Mindstorms robotics kits were purchased using the School Council funds that have been raised through various fundraising initiatives (think pumpkin patch, bottle drive and last year’s spring festival). Thanks to our incredible community for bringing some robotic magic to Earl Haig. We will need some parent support to keep these robots moving, so please stay tuned to learn how you can help out with this exciting new project. Stay Tuned for more information or come out to the School Council meeting!
