LEGO League Starts Soon

The Fall season for JR FLL (for kids 6 - 9) starts Friday September 25th.  We're also gauging interest for an FLL team (for kids 9 - 14).  

For details and an online application, see http://adobebluffspta.com/lego_league.  

Questions?  Email Orlando Cardoso at abesjrfll@gmail.com.


Recess Cart is starting soon and we need help!

We are in need of Recess Cart volunteers.  The Recess Cart consists of playground equipment (balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, etc) to help the students stay active at lunch.  Every Tuesday from 11:30 to 12:30 we need a parent volunteer to put the equipment out for the students to use during lunch recess and then put away the equipment.  There is an online schedule so you can sign up to volunteer as often as you like (once a month, every other month, etc).  This is a great opportunity for parents that have younger children because they can come along.  Its rewarding to see the students having so much fun.  If you are interested, contact Jill Episcopio at JillEpiscopio@hotmail.com or 949-872-7444.
