CARDBOARD BOAT RACE
All middle school students are invited to participate in a CARDBOARD BOAT RACE. Students will design and construct a boat made out of cardboard that they will put into the pool. Students will then get into their boat and race across the pool. Teams will consist of a mixture of 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Students will build their boats after school (10th period). This is NOT a class, it is an after school program. The race is scheduled for May 21st in the afternoon. Parents and guests are invited to attend and watch the action.
