6th Grade News:
To create an awareness of world hunger, the 6th grade Social Studies classes continue to prepare for the annual Hunger Feast which will be held later in November. In addition to this special event, 6th graders are collecting non perishable donations for a canned food drive. Donation boxes are located outside of the Social Studies classrooms. All food donations will be delivered to a local food pantry. Your support helping with this project is greatly appreciated.
The Robotics Club is preparing for their "City Shaper" competition at UMASS Dartmouth on December 8. The students are designing, programming and testing their robots to complete multiple tasks on a playing field. In addition, they are working on an innovation project from FIRST Robotics in which they are identifying a problem with a building or public space in the community, designing a solution and sharing that solution with others. Everyone is welcome to come and cheer on the club at UMASS Dartmouth and watch them compete in the robot challenge portion of the competition.
