1. WRECK

NEW: WRECK for 5th and 6th Grade Students!

WRECK (Whittier Robotics and Engineering Club for Kids) is an amazing amount of fun and also a great way to learn interesting engineering and robotics concepts (without even realizing it!). For those not familiar, WRECK is a PTA run program and is offered to 3rd through 6th graders. Utilizing Lego WeDo kits (3rd and 4th) and BRAND NEW Lego EV3 Mindstorms kits (5th and 6th), we will give interested boys and girls an introduction to robotics and programming. The classes will start with learning basic principles and will culminate in a final project that should be challenging and rewarding. No prior experience required!

Registration is open for Session 2 (5th and 6th Grade) and is limited to 16 students. It starts on January 22nd and classes are Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:30. See HERE for all of the details and to register.

2. Variety Show Application

You may now submit your Variety Show Act/Emcee/Stage Crew application!  Deadline is January 14th for both the applications AND permission slips.  Only 1 application needs to be submitted per act/crew member, however ALL participants (performers, emcees, and stage crew) need a permission slip.
For acts being submitted, please fill out as much detail as you can, however we do realize some things may not be finalized yet.  Once details become nailed down and/or things change (participants, music, props, etc) please send an email to the team at WhittierVarietyShow@gmail.com, or directly to Ann Russell at AnnKHerrick@yahoo.com.
