Winter Holiday Cookie Bar for Our Teachers

It’s almost the winter holiday break, so let’s show our teachers how much we appreciate them with a self-serve cookie buffet on Thursday, December 13, 2018. We are asking for your very best baking skills to make a dozen cookies for our teachers to pick and choose from so they can create their own holiday gift box of cookies!

We appreciate all donations...your best homemade recipe is ideal, but store-bought is also a great option! No baking skills? No time? No problem! You can also make a modest donation as well!

Please send a dozen cookies, either with your student to school, or come in and say hello to us as we set up in Room 211 from 8 AM-10 AM on Thursday, December 13, 2018 (the last regular school day before ACPs). Please bring cookies in a disposable container. We have display trays at school.

When you sign up below, please specify what type of cookie you're bringing--such as chocolate chip, gingerbread, sugar, blossom, cream filled, oatmeal raisin, fig newton, brownies, cake balls, etc! Let's try to make sure we give teachers a good variety!

Food allergies: Several teachers are allergic to nuts and cinnamon. Please note if you have these in your recipes. Thank you!

Please see the Sign Up Genius for more info, thanks!!

Galletas Navideñas para nuestros Maestros!

Ya casi son las vacaciones de invierno, así que demostrémosles a nuestros maestros cuánto los apreciamos con un buffet de galletas de autoservicio el jueves 13 de diciembre de 2018. Estamos solicitando sus mejores habilidades para hornear y hacer una docena de galletas para que nuestros maestros puedan escoger, elegir y crear su propia caja de galletas de regalo para las fiestas navideñas!

Apreciamos todas las donaciones ... su mejor receta casera es ideal, ¡pero comprar en la tienda también es una excelente opción! No hay habilidades para hornear? ¿No hay tiempo? ¡No hay problema! ¡También puedes hacer una modesta donación!

Por favor Envie una docena de galletas, ya sea con su estudiante a la escuela, o venga a saludarnos mientras nos preparamos en la Sala 211 de 8:00 a 10:00 a.m. el jueves 13 de diciembre de 2018 (el último día escolar regular antes de los ACP) . Por favor traiga las galletas en un recipiente desechable. Tenemos bandejas de exhibición en la escuela.

Cuando se registre a continuación, especifique qué tipo de galleta está trayendo, como por ejemplo, chispas de chocolate, pan de jengibre, azúcar, flores, rellenos de crema, pasas de avena, higo, bizcochos, pastelillos, etc. ¡Tratemos de asegurarnos de darles una buena variedad a los maestros!

Alergias a los alimentos: varios maestros son alérgicos a las nueces y la canela. Por favor, tenga en cuenta si tiene estos ingredientes en sus recetas. ¡Gracias!

Robotics Qualifier Needs Volunteers!

Students Earn Volunteer Hours!

On Saturday December 15th, SEM is hosting a 30 team official qualifying tournament. We first did this last year and it was seen as a premier event that served to underline SEM's reputation as the place to be for STEM education. 

We need to recruit about 60 volunteers to pull this off. SEM robotics teams will be helping run the tournament instead of competing. We are looking for staff, parents and students who would like to contribute their time and expertise to hosting a first-rate event.

Please have patience with the Sign Up process. It involves getting an account and following a few steps. It's necessary for such a large event involving students. Thank you!

Full details on roles and how to volunteer are on the Iron Reign website: www.ironreignrobotics.org
 

Los evaluadores de robótica necesita voluntarios y estudiantes, los que participen 

Ganaran horas de voluntariado                                                         

El sábado 15 de diciembre, la Escuela de Ciencias e Ingeniería (SEM) será anfitrión de un torneo de clasificación oficial de 30 equipos. Nosotros fuimos los primeros en llevarlo a cabo el año pasado y fue visto como un evento de primer nivel que sirvió para resaltar la reputación de SEM como el lugar ideal para la educación STEM. Necesitamos reclutar alrededor de 60 voluntarios para lograr esto. Los equipos de robótica SEM ayudarán a organizar el torneo en lugar de competir. Estamos buscando personal, padres y estudiantes que deseen contribuir con su tiempo y experiencia para organizar un evento de primer nivel.                                                                    
Por favor tenga paciencia con el proceso de inscripción. Se trata de abrir una cuenta en línea y seguir unos simples pasos. Esto es necesario por tratarse de un evento tan grande que involucra a los estudiantes. ¡Gracias!
