We hope you have Oct. 13, 6:30 to 8 pm circled on your family calendar (Friday the 13th) for our annual Fall Festival.  Friends and family are invited and it's free!  This is what you can expect:

*  a hayride for the whole family (Thank you Green family)
*  train ride for the little ones  (Thank you Drennan family)
*  Spook alley geared toward teens and brave kids! (Thank you student council)
*  face painting (small charge) (Thank you Mrs. Walloch--we could use more face painters).
*  Dinner (choice of chili dogs or a variety of soups and breads).  This will be a fundraiser for the school.
 
We're in the process of getting food donated to keep the cost of dinner to a minimum.  If you have connections to a business who can help, please let Judy know!  We'd also love family friendly games and music (Judy can provide help if you provide the game).  If you know a family friendly band or entertainer who wouldn't charge much, please let Judy know.  
 
Costumes are encouraged but not necessary.  More information will be provided as we get details finalized.  Have ideas you are willing to help with?  Let Judy know. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
If your middle school student is interested in FLL Robotics (lego) for an elective and club, this is important information for you:
 

Students interested in this club/elective should sign up for their preferred elective that is not FLL Robotics AND their parent/ guardian should attend the FLL Robotics parent meetings. If they make the team, FLL will be their elective, replacing their previous elective choice. It also becomes their after school club.  You may only sign up for FLL Robotics at the parent's meeting:

Room 118 of building A:

-SaturdayAugust 19, 3:00 pm

If you can't make time, please contact Ed Eliason ASAP to make other arrangements at: ed.eliason@beehiveacademy.org

All students who have not had a parent/ guardian attend the class or made arrangements will not be eligible to try out for FLL Robotics. 

FIRST Lego League (FLL Robotics) is a club/elective that only 6th through 8th grade students can try out for. There will be ONE team of eight students TWO alternates who will be chosen based on being able to work as a team, parental support, enthusiasm, and their willingness to put in many hours for the team. This is a full school year commitment, although not all of the year will have extra meetings. 

The season cost is $125/student for the school year. If the team wins State there will be additional costs. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to stay on the team. 

Here is an informative video about FLL:
