A Note From The Middle School...


VEX Robotics Team


Dear Parents, 

Your students heard about the  VEX Robotics Team at our assembly Tuesday and received this e -mail below. Please be sure to contact Clare_Nesfield@fa.org if your child has a serious interest in VEX and can commit to  expectations of the team. 


Deb Schoman

MS Principal



If you are interested in signing up to participate in the after school Vex Robotics Team, please email me: clare_nesfield@fa.org . Your parents will receive this email as well, however, have a discussion with them.


The VEX Robotics Team is a competitive team activity, NOT an after school club. Students work in small teams to build, program, and compete at tournaments with their robots. Just as on an athletic team, if members are absent, the team will suffer in competition. As such, students are expected to attend all team meetings (practices) and competitions. Students who are not willing or able to fully participate will not be allowed to be a part of the team.


- Mandatory Team Meetings on Mondays from 3:30-5:00 starting
Monday, September 17th. Only exceptions will be due to illness or
religious observance

- Mandatory participation/attendance at competitions.
There will be teams of 2-4 students.

*** Not all teams will participate in tournaments, however, students
are expected to attend. ****

- Tournaments are held on Saturdays, typically from 8:00am-2:30pm,
and sometimes after school from 3:30pm-6:00pm.

- The competition schedule is TBA . Usually tournaments begin in late
November and go through February.

- Teams are also required to complete a STEM research project to be
presented at competitions for judging.
