Who needs a Parents’ Night Out?

Overdue for a date night?

Miss restaurants with no kid menus?

Have 334 errands to run?

Support our Destination Imagination team and enjoy a few hours off in the process! Drop off your kids at Bluffsview for a Play Date, and then head out for a Parents’ Night Out this Friday, May 11 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The cost is just $10 per child.

Proceeds will benefit the 3rd grade boys Destination Imagination (“DI”) team. They are the only Worthington Schools team to advance to the Global Finals, and they are among the youngest to compete in the May 23-27 tournament in Knoxville, TN.

If you are interested, fill out this form. Space is limited, so RSVP by Thursday, May 10.

STEAM Night is tomorrow

STEAM Night (formerly known as Science Night) is tomorrow, May 8, from 6:00 until 8:00.

To kick things off, we will have the Paddy Wagon and Explorer’s Club food trucks at 5:30 and the Graeter’s Ice Cream truck. If the weather cooperates, OSU’s Drone club will be flying some of their drones. Principal Fox and some of your favorite teachers will be racing life-sized hovercrafts built by Michael Seed. Kathyayani Mahadevan has graciously agreed to bring some of STEM-U’s robots and activities, which are always a hit. Worthington’s own WorBots (who won a competition in Cleveland last weekend) will be demonstrating how their robot works. And, of course, we will have hand’s on experiments and activities.

There are still a few volunteer slots open. Please consider signing up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4cacab29a1fa7-steam
