Newsletter #19

Middleton Robotics Parents, Students, Sponsors, & Volunteers:

Thanks to everyone that attended the final parents meeting at Middleton last Friday, May 23, 2014.  If you missed the discussion, I have attached the presentation we reviewed during that meeting. This email contains additional information about two of the topics discussed during the meeting:

1.       Yellow Book Distribution Fundraiser

2.       Season Celebration Party—May 31, 2014

Newsletter Details:

1.       Yellow Book Distribution Fundraiser – Last year we were able to get a jumpstart on the next seasons fundraising by earning $2,711 and it allowed many students to receive credit toward their fundraising requirements for the 2013-14 season (e.g.  Elijah DeWolf raised $782.45, Jon Roth raised $364.05, & Nick Berglund raised $300.83).  The main reason we were able to raise $2,711 is because we had multiple parents that organized individual groups of students to distribute the Yellow Books.  The more people involved, the more routes we can do, and the more money we can raise.  The Yellow Book Distribution starts on June 2, 2014 and you will need to go to the warehouse (Seaboard Terminals, 6708 Harney Road, Tampa, FL).  Before going, I suggest you first decide what zip codes and areas you are interested in distributing books.  When you arrive at the warehouse, please tell them that you are a part of the Middleton High School Robotics Club and they will work with you to find routes for you.  After completing the route(s), you will need to return to the warehouse and return any books you did not distribute along with the distribution worksheet.  They will give you a receipt for your route and the dollar amount that will be credited to the account.  Please email me the dollar amount and the students that helped you distribute the books along with the hours they worked.  The following link provides a video with more details about the process:  http://vimeo.com/17144885

2.       Season Celebration Party—May 31, 2014– I will again be hosting an end of year celebration party at my house located at 18806 Crescent Road, Odessa.  We will start at 1pm and end when the last person leaves.  As usual, I will provide the main meal for dinner but I am asking for everyone to bring drinks, snacks, and side dishes.  All students, parents, and family members are welcome to attend. So far, I have received an RSVP email from 10 people. Please response to this email prior to May 27th and let me know how many people will be attending and if you will bring drinks, snacks, or a side dish.

The purpose of this email is to announce the final two events of the robotics season. On Friday, May 23rd at 5:30pm we will have the final parents meeting to review results and discuss plans for next year.  The final event of this season will be the club celebration party on May 31, 2014.  The details of the two events are described in the reminder of this newsletter:

Newsletter Details:

1.       Club Team Picture – May 23, 2014 – Earlier in the school year we took a great picture of all of the club students that we have used in our club overview flyer.  At that time, we did not have team shirts for all of the students.  Therefore, on Friday, May 23, 2014 immediately after school we would like to again take a picture of all of the students in the club.  All students should plan on wearing their team shirts to school that day and meet in the robotic class rooms immediately after school.

————————————————

2.       Final Parents Meeting – May 23, 2014 – The final parents meeting of the 2013-14 robotics season is scheduled for May 23, 2014, 5:30pm to 6:00pm.  The focus of the meeting will be to review results from this year, formally announce the club leadership for the 2014-15 season, and discussion summer fundraising activities.  I will also review the financial status of the club and how many students achieved their fundraising goal.  Please make an effort to attend this final meeting.  The meeting will be held in Scott Mead’s classroom.
