Fun @ the Sock Hop!

The 3rd annual Sock Hop was lots of fun and raised approximately $4,000 for our sister school in Afghanistan.   Thank you to John Hay students, parent volunteers and the Public Stewardship Committe for their time and efforts.

 This event would not be possible without the help of our extraordinary volunteers!  They decorated and organized, cooked hotdogs, popped popcorn, painted faces, served food and drinks, ran the cupcake walk, played music, sold tickets and glow sticks, counted money and cleaned up – WOW!  

Stay tuned for more on our Journey with an Afghan School project.

Robotics will be coming to John Hay in 2011-2012!

I am happy to let you know that next year we will be bringing a new after school program to John Hay!  It is a robotics program that Coe Elementary has titled Coebotics.    This is an excellent program that Coe has been doing and that John Hay will be starting next year.  Our school will  have two teams in the fall, a FLL team which will be ages 9-14 and a jrFLL which will be for ages 6-9.  If you think you might be interested in providing this opportunity for your student I would encourage you to attend an informational meeting tomorrow night at Coe Elementary.  Please read below for more information on the meeting.  If you have any questions please contact Sara Mirabueno at 252-2100.

 While there is little you need to do before school starts, there are some helpful things we have learned in the past two years, which if taken care of now, will allow you to hit the ground running in September and prepare for the competition season in WA State. 

So therefore, I’m glad to hold an informal meeting on Wednesday June 8th at 7:00 PM at the Coe Elementary School home of the CoeBotics teams and talk to you about how we are organized, what we have learned and answer any questions you may have.  You should feel free to bring whom ever you like, other parents, teachers etc, other schools or organizations who may be interested in starting etc.  Feel free to forward this open invitation to whomever it may help.
