January 9

GMPA offerings are now on the E-Community Bulletin Board!

Lego Robotics 2 will be starting Jan 27th, from 2:30 to 4:30.  This will be for students that completed the beginner class or are already familiar with the basics of Lego NXT Mindstorms Robots. There will only be 10 seats available, and the robotic classes are for students with an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Click here to sign up.  

Grade 5/6 Fun Night is January 31.  To sign up your child or yourself as a volunteer, visit the PTO Website, or go to the direct link by clicking here.

Waterbury Winterfest is next weekend!  This 10-day extravaganza features lots of great kid-friendly events.  We hope you have an opportunity to get outside with your kids and watch or participate...  it's a great way to encourage being active even when it's cold outside.  Stay tuned for a "Kid Cliff Notes to Waterbury Winterfest" document coming soon, but in the meantime check the Waterbury winterfest website.   

The Waterbury Cub Scouts are doing a recycling fundraiser, and they are looking for any old cellphones or MP3 players you might have laying around in drawers at home.  There are several companies that buy these, clean them up and resell them to other companies like Tracfone.  The scouts are also looking for empty laser toner cartridges and empty inkjet cartridges as they can get money for those as well.  If you have any that you'd like to donate, please drop them off in the collection box that is in the CBMS lobby.

Think free breakfast is a good idea?  Erika Dolan from the WDSD Food Service is putting together some testimony from parents whose children qualify for the reduced price category that are now taking advantage of free breakfast and lunch. The question is: What difference does it make for you and your kids that the reduced-price lunches you used to pay for are now there for your kids at no cost to you?  If you have quick thoughts (like a sentence or two!) on this question, please submit them by clicking here.
