Mrs. Plumer is in need of some art volunteers. Do you like to decorate? She needs a parent helper or two to hang some artwork in our hallways. Additionally, it’s time for our smocks to have a bath. It would be great to have a volunteer wash them over winter break. You can contact her at email@example.com.
Staff Appreciation Luncheon
Staff Appreciation Luncheon will be held on May 20th. This is a time for all Flynn parents to come together and make salads or yummy snacks for the staff at JJ Flynn. In addition, parents cover lunch and playground duty so all the teachers and staff can enjoy a wonderful break with their fellow co-workers. If interested in helping please let Flynn PTO know. A sign up genius will be coming out in March!
Family Skate Night
Family Skate Night will be on March 18th, from 5:30-7:30, at Leddy Park Ice Arena.
It’s a treasured favorite of Flynn School. Mark your calendar!
Springfest Volunteer Call
This has been a well attended event at JJ Flynn but we are in need of volunteers to help continue Springfest this year. If you have not attended in the past there has been a bouncy house, face painting, carnival games, a fun run, food and much more. This year Springfest would occur on May 22nd. Please respond if interested in helping with any of the different events.
Talent Show Thanks
A huge thank you to Karen Carr for organizing a terrific event this year with 48 acts and all the other parents volunteers!

Video Presentations of Robots
A few months ago, fourth graders were given a challenge to create robots with Lego WeDo Robotic sets. These sets are a user friendly and simplistic way to enter into the world of robotics and code them to do simple tasks.
The following videos were created by our Lego Robotic teams and shared at an all school assembly. The challenge they were given was to create a robot that used either the motor or the sensor and solved a problem. The ideas students came up with were varied and creative, many hoping to help humanity tackle problems.
(Read on to see some of the videos they created!)
