Robotics Club 2nd Day

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th

There are just a couple of spots left in the Wednesday robotics club session. I am looking at opening up a second session on Thursday if there are a number of students who would like to participate. Please let me know if you would be interested in a Thursday session - lisa.ramsey@mnps.org.


1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th



STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. STEAM Edu-cation provides students with hands-on experience that can be used with real-world applications. STEAM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, fosters collaboration and enables the next generation of innovators.

Students will participate in activities such as building bridges, constructing towers, designing new products and improving existing products. Students from last year are encouraged to sign up as well as new students.

There is a $200 registration/materials fee for Mondays and a $200 registration materials fee for Thursdays.

Who: 1st-4th Graders facilitated by Dr. Coats, Mrs. Cary, and Mrs. Allen (4th Grade teachers)
Where: The PPE STEAM Lab, Dr. Coats’ room, and outside
When: Mondays and/or Thursdays after school until 4:00 Jan. 22 through March 26

Guitar Club


Beginner Guitar Club

* New Thursday Group *

Club Host: Mr. Hudson

Who: Open to 4th Graders at Percy Priest Elementary

Number of Students: The first 10 students to sign up.

Email: brian.hudson@mnps.org

Cost: $120 per student ($10 per week for 12 weeks)

Requirement/Additional Costs/Equipment: Students will need to bring their own guitar with case (acoustic or electric unplugged). If your child does not have a guitar, Mr. Hudson can make recommendations. Decent beginner guitars can be purchased from $50 - $200 and up. The most important thing is that the guitar fits the student.

A clip-on guitar tuner is also recommended for as little as $15. (brands like Snark, Korg, D’Addario, etc.)

When: Thursdays from Dismissal until 4:15

Duration: 12 weeks

Proposed Dates: Jan. 11, 18, 25 Feb. 1, 8, 15, 22 Mar. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29

Where: Mr. Hudson’s 4th grade classroom (room 14)

Expectations: Mr. Hudson cannot promise that you’ll be creating blistering solos at the end of the 12 weeks. The intent is that students learn the basics of how a guitar works, names of the strings and notes in standard tuning, and basic/common chord shapes. We will try to put these all together to learn a song or two.

Robotics Club

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th

Students will use coding to program robots such as drones, Ozobots, and Dashes.
