Block Kids Program

Posted on: December 15, 2015

Dear Whitaker Families,

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the National Association of Women in Construction - Block Kids Program on Saturday, January 30 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

The program introduces students to construction fields through a building competition. We begin with each student being given 100 Lego blocks, string, cardboard, foil and a small stone (they can use three items in addition to their blocks.) Using these materials and their imaginations they can construct anything they like within the 45 minute to one hour time frame. The contest is open to students in grades 1-6 and Brent students are welcome to attend. There will be grade level winners and a grand prize winner who will be sent on to a larger competition.

We will have assemblies explaining/promoting the program to our students on Monday, December 14. We are limited to 125 students so it will be first come first serve. More information and the permission slip are attached. The attached will also come home Thursday folders after the school presentations.       

If interested, please return your permission slip to the school office soon to guarantee your child a spot.

Thank you,
Lisa Tenbarge
Principal, Whitaker Elementary
