Mr. Neibauer and Mr. Mckenzie are excited to bring the First Lego League to Rolling Hills Elementary! We will have two teams of ten (10) students from 4th and 5th grades compete on November 15th at Campus Middle School in the Southeast Denver Metro Qualifier competition. We will be the coaches for the two teams, however, we would love to have parents help as co-coaches and help run the teams.
If any parents volunteer to run their own team, we will be able to have more teams compete.
On September 16th at 4:30pm, there will be mandatory parent meeting in Mr. Neibauer's room to discuss what First Lego League (FLL) entails for student participants and their parents. If your student is interested in participating in Lego League, a parent MUST attend this meeting. It is a big commitment taking a team from the beginning of the season to competition day. We want to make sure parents and students know what is expected before going forward.
After the meeting, we will provide a link to a Google Form for the lottery sign-up. This process will include providing general information (student’s name, parent’s name, email, etc). It will also include a few short essay questions for the student to complete.
We will leave the sign-up open for one week. After it closes, we will use a lottery system to select 20 students who will then be invited to participate. Upon their selection, the registration fee of $55 per student will be due. This fee covers competition registration, the team kit, a team t-shirt, and team supplies.
We are tentatively scheduling the first practice early in October. That will give the teams six weeks to prepare for the final competition.
Please email Mr. McKenzie or Mr. Neibauer if you have any additional questions.
See you at 4:30pm on Tuesday, September 16th in Mr. Neibauer's room (room 51)
