Two Thornapple Kellogg FIRST Lego Robotics teams are preparing for competition this weekend in Grandville. One of the teams is from Page Elementary and the other from the middle school.
Hundreds of students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade are expected to compete in the annual event that encourages students to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), as well as use their imaginations to solve a problem. They also use team-building, presentation and creativity skills.
TKMS students will have two performances of the musical "Pirates of Penzance Jr." Show are at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 and 17 in the high school auditorium. This is a family-friendly show with great songs, pirates and comedy. Everyone is invited to attend and support TKMS students.
As Thornapple Kellogg eight graders filed down for a special Veterans Day program, they looked at the footprints along the hallway walls and some pointed out names of family members printed on paper bricks in a display case.
The footprints, each costing $1, bore the names of friends, cousins, aunts and uncles who have served or are serving in the armed forces. In a display case, several paper bricks were displayed to build a wall - each brick had the name of an immediate family member printed on them. They formed the "Building Blocks of Liberty."
