Wednesday Build Session Cancelled (Lanco) – Sunday Build Crew Candidates Needed (FMS)

2/7/2018:   Both Gorham and Falmouth have early dismissals today in consideration of the coming storm.  In that light, we are canceling this evening’s (Wednesday) robotics events.

With that said, we are also considering meeting this Sunday afternoon at FHS.  Please let us know your interest and availability.

Stay warm and safe, Mrs Moutinho & Mr Kraljic

Wed Jan 17th -Unfortunately we need to cancel robotics due to the weather.

Team 172,

Unfortunately, we need to cancel robotics due to the weather.

For those subteams that can work at home (design, programming), we hope that you can take advantage of this day off from school to get some robotics work done.  We are now in week 2 and still have a lot to do.

We are both working online this afternoon so if you have any questions, feel free to email.

Stay warm and safe,

Mrs Moutinho & Mr Kraljic

Opportunity for Fundraising Hours

There is one more great opportunity to get the rest of your fundraising hours. Just sell some Bon-Ton coupons! Here are the steps you need to follow:

1. Find a selling partner (just two per shift)
2. Find an adult to be at your shift
3. Let Mrs. Moutinho know the date and time so she can register you
4. Pick up the display box, booklets, team poster, and start up cash the day before your shift
5. Look through the booklet so you are familiar with the coupons
6. During your shift, set up our display on a table by one of the entrances and ask customers as they enter if they would like to buy a booklet for $5.00. The team keeps 100% of the funds.

This will be taking place between Feb 8th to Feb 24th (Some of these days are vacation days and weekend days). And you can sign up for any of the following shifts:

10:00 am – 12:00 pm
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
