Traffic Safety

Reports of traffic issues have come in regarding backups on E. Amazon and 39th. For the safety of all, please consider these safety guidelines:

• If two or more students attend, the older student(s) should use the drop off/pick up zone of the youngest sibling.

  Do not stop where your child is standing for a pick-up, especially if there is an empty space in front of you to pull forward. Continue to move forward so traffic is not backed up. Your child will make her/his way to your car on the sidewalk.

  Drive slowly and do not “leap frog” ahead to an open space. If everyone pulls forward, this should end that practice.

• Do not drop off at the front door, continue to pull forward to ease traffic flow.

• Please refrain from using your cell phone in the pick-up line.

  Do not get out of your car. If you need to get out of your car to support the entry/exit of your child(ren), then please park in a designated

Treetop Academics: Robotics!

Our Winter term Science class will be a multi-disciplinary experience in electronics leading to integration in robotics. This class will introduce the fundamentals of circuitry, electronics, programming, and integrating these concepts with Robotics and hands-on applications. Students will be given

differentiated challenges, tasks, and opportunities to increase their

own individual abilities while working with others in groups. We

will be working with simple circuits and electricity, focusing on the

fundamentals into the larger world of robotics and programming.

If your student has ever looked at an electronic device and asked,

“How does that work?” or “How can I make that?” then, this is the

right place to start. The aim of this class is to offer opportunities for

each student that will build a foundation in the content areas from

the ground up. This will be a comprehensive class with a focus on

supporting the student to explore, create, and learn in the world of computer science, technology, robotics and programming. Currently, this is term one of a two-term experience in Electronics and Robotics. No prior experience is necessary.

Please see the Treetop Academics website for more information.
