PTA Sponsors BE THE NICE KID Speaker

Avon focuses on kindness with speaker and student council activities.

Bryan Skavnak spoke to students at Avon Elementary about "Be the Nice Kid." Through storytelling, he had students laughing, smiling, and thinking about what they could do to be the nice kid at Avon Elementary. Afterwards, he joined students for recess to play and continue to encourage his message about being the nice kid. Thanks, PTA and Avon Student Council, for supporting Bryan's visit to Avon Elementary.

Middle School Robotics

Middle School Robotics Team off to a great start in year one.

What is Robotics? Robotics is an educational extra-curricular activity that teaches students programming, math, project management, teamwork skills, and engineering. The students are in control of the project progress while the coach is there to supervise and assist the students. This year the team is thankful to have the help of Nathan Kalthoff and Noah Kalthoff.
The students will be required to engineer a robot that meets a few standards. The building area must be an 18x18x18 inch cube and the robot must have a max capacity of 8 motors. 
The team will be in an alliance with another VEX Robotics team, an alliance that was assigned at the beginning of the season. However, in the qualifying round teams could be picked to be an ally with one of the qualifying 16 teams. With their alliance, teams will compete against two other teams. The objective is to move blocks into the goals. 
The students compete in a number of tournaments; the Albany VEX Robotics team has competed in two tournaments already. The last tournament is January 7th. Each tournament consists of qualification matches, a Round of 16, quarter finals, semifinals, and finals.

Students at sewing machines

Students again took part in college and career readiness activities this month. Several groups did service learning projects including, caroling, visiting the Eagle's Healing Nest, and knitting hats for cancer patients.

Fifteen students came together to make hats for cancer patients.  We were hoping to produce 15 hats; however during our hour and a half together, with great teamwork-pinning, cutting and sewing-we created 29 hats!  Great job team!
