Calling All Lego Fans!!!

Willis Road Elementary is proud to host our 2019 Lego Club!!

This year we are excited to offer two different clubs - one for K-2 and one for 3-5. It will begin on Monday, September 9, with the Grades 3-5 group, and alternate Mondays with the Grades K-2 group. Each group will meet five times.
Grades 3-5 will meet on: 9/9, 9/23, 10/7, 10/28, and 11/11.
Grades K-2 will meet on: 9/16, 9/30, 10/21, 11/4, and 11/18.
Demand was so high last year that this year we are doing a lottery drawing. If you are interested in your child being in the drawing, please look for the paper that will be sent home in Monday's folder (August 19) return the bottom portion of this paper no later than Monday 8/26. A separate form must be turned in for each child. For example, if you have a 3rd grader and a 1st grader, each child must have his/her own form.
The club will meet immediately after school and students will need to be picked up at 3:30 pm.
If your child likes to have fun and build with Legos, please return this form no later than Monday, August 26, (no exceptions). If your child’s name is drawn, you will be notified and payment will be made at that time.
