I support Battle of the Bridges
I will be meeting with Mr. Malanga at 9:30 tomorrow to discuss why the battle of the bridges is being canceled. I asked him to provide a statement to the 5th grade parents regarding why this fun and educational project was omitted. He informed me that decisions regarding trips, assemblies, and special programs are at the discretion of the school, not the parent community. He said that if a parent feels the need to speak with him about these types of decisions they can contact him directly. I would encourage you to sign this petition and/or reach out to him directly if you would like to help us attempt to save this valuable project.
I would like to be able to show him tomorrow that the parents and students care about this project. In additon, please let me know via the poll question if you would be willing to help problem solve any logistical issues precluding the Battle of the Bridges from happening. (i.e. testing the strength of the bridge) Our kids have already missed out on the space center trip due to the unfortunate closure, lets not let another STEM activity slip away from Wilson tradition unless absolutely necessary.
Coincidentally, tonight at 9pm on Fox, the new episode of Legomasters airing is a "Battle of the Bridges" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V7yKuSCKuI
