CANstruction! Urgent!!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great week. I know it’s last minute, but for those who are participating in CANstruction, we are going to get together to talk about it tomorrow between 5:00-5:30pm in ETB 219 (I’m pretty sure it’s open). Mr. Jefferson has some things he would like to share with us.

I am really looking forward to hearing about your can mini-builds over the weekend and hopefully seeing some preliminary sketches (remember that deadline we have on Friday? EEEEK!) If you can’t make it to the meeting tomorrow but you have something you’d like to share, please send it over to me and I will be happy to present it for you.

Don’t forget WEDNESDAY is our full club meeting! See you there.

Brooke

Spring Break:
We are throwing around several ideas of where to go for our Spring Break trip. We are thinking about doing a New York City trip with Mr. Jefferson and a trip to Rome, Italy with Mr. Card, for those who would rather go out of the country.

Cost Estimates (not including club subsidy):
Rome: $1,300 flights & hotels + $300 for food/museums/tours/etc. = $1600New York City: $800 flights & hotels + $300 for food/museums/tours/etc. = $1100

Club subsidy will be equal for both trips, the current estimate is $300/person. HOWEVER, the more fundraising we do, the higher that number goes!
With subsidy:Rome: $1000 deposit by November 1st + $300 club funds + $300 by March = $1300 from student
New York City: $500 deposit by November 1st + $300 club funds + $300 by March = $800 from student

We will vote on these at our next meeting (9/9 @ 12pm & 9/10 @ 5:30pm); to vote you MUST be a paid member.

Tutoring will be available soon! Keep an eye out for tutoring times and dates (they will be posted on classroom doors). If you would like to tutor your fellow students, see Mr. Jefferson or Ms. Julie for more information.

Our next meeting is going to be on September 9 at 12 PM in Room 219 (ETB), we will also be holding an evening meeting September 10 5:30-6:00 PM. Hope to see you there!

Meeting adjourned at 1:00 PM
