Jubilee Innovation Club starts May 4th
What: Odle Jubilee club and PTSA are pleased to announce the schedule for Odle’s Jubilee Innovation Club in partnership with SPIN (STEM Paths Innovation Network). The project starts pilot at Highland and Tillicum middle schools as a way to engage and enrich youth involvement in STEAM and have a number of great activities planned for the remainder this year. Now it comes to Odle.
When: Sessions start on May 4th through June 12th on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:30pm to 4:15pm (11 sessions total). In the first few sessions, students will disassemble and reassemble a desktop computer. These sessions will involve learning about basic components of a computer and how to load the operating system and some programs. In a second set of sessions, students will be working with a Minecraft build challenge.
Who: Please see Jubilee Reach site coach Carlos to pick up the paper registration form and turn back the form to him. This is a pilot program and space is limited. So registration is first come first serve.
Help: As this project is primarily volunteer driven, we are eagerly seeking partners in the community to support as volunteers and instructor assistants. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer.
Donation: The program is funding through PTSA and Jubilee club. There is a special campaign for the special STEAM program http://www.jubileereach.org/steambanner

"Plunder Shack" Donation Needed
Hello Esteemed Parents,
I am writing to ask for your help. Since last year, Odle students have been working hard to earn "Odle Bucks" from their teachers by doing well in their classes or random acts of kindness that are deserving of a reward. The students then use their "Odle Bucks" to buy various items at our school "Plunder Shack" every Friday during lunch in the cafeteria. Almost all of the items for the store are donated and we are running low on items. If you have the capacity to donate items either personally or through company connections, that would be so appreciated. Some examples of items that have previously been donated are: toys, hats, school supplies, notebooks, jewelry, Sounders and Seahawks gear, stuffed animals, headphones, card games, video games, gift cards, Microsoft Surface tablets, and Amazon Kindles. Anything would be greatly appreciated as we hope to keep the Plunder Shack going and make it even more exciting for the future.
Donated items may be brought to the front office or mailed to the school. Thank you so much for your support!
