Yankee Candle Fundraiser 

This is our first fundraiser of the year! Christmas is around the corner and a candle is the perfect item for the people on your gift list. Get a candle for your secret Santa, your friends, and your coworkers; you can even send items directly to people who live far away! 

I love the Sparking Cinnamon candle for Christmas, but currently, I am in a Fall mood so the Macintosh candle sounds more appealing at the moment. There is even a Spiced Pumpkin scent for those of you who look forward to fall just to get everything pumpkin spice flavored! Besides the quintessential jar candles, you can also buy votives, tea light candles, accessories, flameless air fresheners,  gift sets, and kindle candles to star those cozy fires

Opposite tasks

We have recently received the FTC field we ordered to be able to practice for the Velocity Vortex Game. The students and mentors got busy putting the multiple pieces together but there is still some work to do. 

On the opposite side of the wall, other students were laying our 2015 tote stacker FRC robot to rest.  You can review the creation and performance of this robot in our previous posts. The parts will be recycled and used in future build projects so in a way, the tote stacker will still be with us. 

Finally, our Fundraising Coordinator, Letha Welch, distributed the Yankee Candle Fundraiser packets so the students can start selling and pay for their team fee. Stay tuned for an easy way to order online and support the team.

Student Orientation Meeting 

The year has kicked off to a great start! After our open house and parent meetings, we met with the students today to go over some introductory information. The students and mentors got to introduce themselves, and then we introduced the guidelines that we follow in the group. An important part of today’s training was watching the Youth Protection Program video and watching the new FTC game video reveal. If you were not able to attend today’s meeting, you can watch the videos below.

The students were also reminded that they should fill out two forms online. You may access the forms by clicking on the links below:

We will meet again next week to begin working on the FRC robot to get it ready for the SCRIW competition next month and we will also begin brainstorming ideas for the FTC robot. 

See you there!
