Holy Rosary students can participate in our after-school robotics teams that are part of the national FIRST Lego League (FLL) organization. There are two leagues available:
Kindergarten through Third Grade participate in Junior FIRST Lego League (JrFLL). Students research that yearâ€™s theme, come up with a Lego WeDo 2.0 model of their chosen topic, and present their findings at an exposition. They will have fun, while learning teamwork, creativity, and presentation skills. For more detailed information, including videos and FAQs, please visit: http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr
Fourth through Eighth Grade compete in FIRST Lego League (FLL). Students research an annual theme, create a Lego EV3 robotic to complete the assigned missions, decide on a real-world problem related to the theme that they want to create a solution for, and demonstrate their understanding of the league core values in from of judges. They will have a great time learning teamwork, engineering, problem solving, and presentation skills.

Senorita Parisa Asgharzadeh hosts a Spanish Club after school for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Â
Spanish club will be an exciting time for the students at Holy Rosary to further explore the Spanish language and strengthen their speaking skills.Â Students will be engaged in hands on learning opportunities that incorporate culture, music and art!Â It will be full-emersion which means students will only hear Spanish being spoken during the club!Â Students will be provided with a safe environment to begin speaking the language and using their Spanish vocabulary.Â My hope is to strengthen their verbal Spanish speaking skills and confidence with the language.Â Each Spanish Club will run for six weeks with the hopes to give all students an opportunity to participate!
The Holy Rosary Agilent â€śAfter Schoolâ€ť science program is a hands-on science experiment series that brings STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) based science to students grades 3-8 (ages 9 to 13).
In particular it aims at providing hands-on life, physical and earth-science experiments
that have been designed into a complete “experiment-in-a-box.” The Agilent After School science kits obtained for Holy Rosary contain all of the materials for children to build science experiments such as electronic-circuit games, balloon-powered cars, terrariums, and more with support from a local Agilent employee volunteer.
While this program supplements in-school science lessons it also supports international,
federal and state common core standards for science and emerging STEM standards, Because Agilent After School is fully funded by Agilent and implemented by Mr. Short, it is provided at no cost to Holy Rosary and the children attending the Agilent After School program.
