ROBOTICS TEAM MEETINGS FOR 2017-2018
The Robotics Team is underway for the 2017-2018 season.  We are meeting on most Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3-4:30pm in the Tech Lab B222. Parents and alumni are welcome too.
Beginning November 1st there will be a $55 fee to participate on the team. If the fee is a hardship, please contact Mr Nedd at nedd_nicholas@svvsd.org and we will see how we can help.  We don’t want anyone to miss out because of the fee.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help in a broad range of commitment levels ranging from coaching, fund raising and grant writing, all the way to contributing snacks. 
Please contact Nick Nedd nedd_nicholas@svvsd.org with any questions or to volunteer.
