[04/19/17]   There are only FOUR DAYS left in this legislative session, and neither the Democrat or Republican plan amply funds basic education.

The levy cliff was extended because of pressure from citizens. That pressure is needed again NOW (and likely well into the summer). Please help THIS WEEK by completing one of these invoices:


1. Please forward this to friends and family all over the state, particularly those in and around the Tri-Cities, Auburn, and Bellingham areas.
2. Download and complete the attached invoice.
3. Take a picture of or scan your invoice and share *publicly* on social media with the hashtags on the invoice, and email a copy to your representatives
4. Join Hillary Shaw and Washington's Paramount Duty volunteers and board members in Olympia this Thursday to hand-deliver your and others' invoices
5. Mail the paper copy to Kristine Lytton, co-chair of the Ed Funding Task Force (Ann Rivers, the other co-chair, is known to toss mail from ed advocates)

You can find your legislators here: http://app.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder/

Class Dates 4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, 5/19, 5/26, 6/2, 6/9

Have you ever wondered how airplanes are built? Would you like a better understanding of how they make strong, light structures that can fly? In this focused extension of the Engineering Challenge physical modeling class each student will work individually to build two classic balsa wood models that can either provide a detailed static display or can be covered in tissue to become a real flying model. The objective will be to gain understanding and experience with basic modeling, structural and aerodynamic principals.

Each student will take home their models at the end of the class in whatever final form their skill level will allow them to achieve. Previous modeling experience is desired but not necessary.

This class will work with cutting tools and other work methods that require significant dexterity and fine motor skills. Parent volunteers who have or can complete the volunteer paperwork prior to the first class could help expand the offering to more students. Any parent who wishes to volunteer will be granted free tuition for a student taking the class. Some modeling experience is helpful but not necessary to volunteer.

Instructor Mike Ronda is a Fairmount Park Elementary parent, Civil Engineer and Construction Project Manager with the City of Tukwila. He has previously co-taught Engineering Challenge and Rockets 101 at Fairmount Park. He has two 5th graders at FPE. His father and uncle were both master model builders and some of these skills were passed on to Mike. The objective of the class is to introduce to a new generation some of the excitement and satisfaction of building something with your own hands.
