All incoming kindergarten students, along with their parents, should attend this important event.

Children who are 5 years old on or before AUGUST 1ST 2019, will be eligible for Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year.

The students have been working on the challenge since October, with the help of the Fitch robotics and NHS students. The students meet once a week after school to work on the project.    

First LEGO League teams research real-world problems and
are challenged to develop solutions along with designing, building and programming a robot using Lego Mindstorm technology.
