It is very important for parents to remember that while participating in Robotics is fun and students learn a lot, it is an extracurricular activity that requires a certain level of commitment. Students and parents have to be willing to commit 2-6 hours a week from August until March, with several Saturdays for competition. If your child is NOT INITIATING the desire to participate, robotics may not be the best fit and one of our other awesome opportunities at Mitchell may fit their personality and schedule better. We are always looking for parent coaches, assistant coaches and team volunteers. Without parents we cannot support the 100 plus kids that participate each year in the program. If you have an interest in helping, please email Katie McLean firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or check out the FLL website: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll
The fall deadline to submit an application will be Friday, August 30, by 4:00 PM.
The Robotics Parent Meeting will be held on Thursday, September 6 at 4:30 pm. Mitchell students may remain at school and meet their parents at the meeting that will be held in the Mitchell Commons.
