Friendly Reminder to Participants and Parents
Today is Friday February 14
Only 16 more days to work on your Invention
Don’t worry - YOU CAN DO IT!!!
Thanks to all of you for participating in our 2020 Hoover Invention Convention. As of today you
have less than 3 weeks, including the Presidents’ Day weekend (Thursday- Tuesday),
to complete work on your invention and display board. If your family has made other plans
during the break, you will need to factor that into your completion schedule. !!
IMPORTANT DATES !!
February 14 - March 1 - 16 days to complete your project and fine-tune your display. Intent
to Invent forms are past due to your teacher. !
Monday, March 2 - Bring completed inventions and project boards directly to your classroom
before school. Your class will be notified when it is your turn to deliver your project to the MP
Room. Be ready to pickup your team member from a different room to help you set-up. !
SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS - On the Monday set-up day, Mrs. Rigas needs help
from many parents. Some tasks include getting the MP Room tables ready, picking up the
students from their classrooms, helping the students check-in, and guiding students where
to setup their displays. Scheduling is flexible starting at 8:00 a.m. You can easily sign up
on Konstella once in any or each of the three shifts (look out for the notification soon). You can also email Mrs. Rigas to sign up, ask questions, or if your child needs help. (firstname.lastname@example.org) !
