Lego WeDo Robotics

After School Enrichment Program at Lake Forest Elementary 

Brought to you by Roper Mountain Science Center 

Advanced LEGO WeDo Robotics — Grades 3-4 

Program Description

Using LEGO’s new WEDO 2.0 kits students will take their robot programming skills to the next level. These cordless robots exceed the capabilities of the original WeDo kits. Each session students will build a different robot, then they will be given design challenges to program the robots to perform several tasks. Unlike our other WeDo classes, students will focus on developing their own programming instructions to control their robots. Wireless robots and tablet controls allow students to unleash their robot programming skills!

In an effort to decrease the spread of illness at school, the school district woud like to remind you of the following:

1.  Check your child for flu symptoms.  Keep your child home if he/she has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. If your student has a fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school (this means without the use of fever reducing medications.
2.  If your student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school.  Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stool in a 24 hour period.
3.   A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours.  A student should have 1 or 2 meals wthout vomiting before returning to school.
4.  Practice frequent hand washing and covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze at home and school.

Thank you for helping us keep our school a healthy place to learn!

South Carolina School Report Card

South Carolina School Report Cards

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education.  Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.

These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates.

If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
