Team Rovera had a great season and to celebrate, we launch some rockets and shared some good food. Thank to all who have helped over the season. We look forward to the upcoming season.
The team thought since Daring Dragons came in 2nd they would make the Dragon the team mascot.
Its official, our first team is now Rovera. The female version name of rover (as in the NASA Rovers).
We got back our application from the IRS and are are approved as a Non-Profit! We are off to a great start!
for those the might not have gotten the email.
– We have support for only 16 students (2 teams) based on the number of coaches.
– Initially, we will be offering 1 team (8 students) that will meet on Thursdays after school from 4–6pm and every other weekend on Sundays from 4-6pm.
-The group will start meeting on February 22nd and run thru May 31st.
If we fill up all 8 slots, I can look at adding an additional team that would meet on Tuesdays.
If you and your student are interested in a spot, please submit your student’s application as soon as possible if you have not yet done so. Apply now at https://goo.gl/EQKPnD
As I mentioned in a previous email the cost for the spring session has been restructured to $260. Payment will be required prior to the first meeting.
We look forward to seeing your daughter in our Spring Session.
Had a GREAT Meeting with our coaches this past Sunday. We now have a schedule in place which we will announce in a couple days.
We also have Ms. Sandbank to thank for agreeing to let us use her class room during the week after school.
I also have to give a shout out to Dr. Draper for allowing us to organize and pull this off.
I have been talking with some folks who wish to become coaches and I can not say a lot right this moment but their ideas, skills, background and passion are amazing. Once things are closer we will provide more details. Stay tuned.
The student application is online and ready to go.
Here is the link https://goo.gl/EQKPnD.
We do ask that if you have a younger student, to help them fill out the form and correct any typos or help with any questions they might have on the form. Please let them supply the answers. BTW there is no right or wrong answer. Some of the questions help us figure out how to pair the students between the teams.
One of the questions is about “Gracious Professionalism”, this might not be a word you or the student know and that’s ok. Here is the definition: Gracious Professionalism is part of the ethos of FIRST. It’s a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community. With Gracious Professionalism, fierce competition and mutual gain are not separate notions.
We are in the process of starting LuminousSTREAM. Look for more to come.
