Lego Club meets for final time until next winter

By Jason Bruce

Lego club was a huge success this year as we had over 80 students involved in our free, after-school program. There were two groups that met either on Tuesday or Thursday of each week.

This club is designed around the winter months where access to activities outside is restricted.  The goal is to let the students build what they want for about an hour.  We were able to use the indoor recess room after school instead of the pre-school building which allowed for more building and less walking and getting in and out of winter clothes.

This has been a yearly club and we have had very consistent numbers.  We have pre-k students all the way to sixth grade. We have a snack that is donated by the WEPC and parents to give the students at the end of the day.

This year, we challenged the students to create a home or business to be judged upon by the students. For almost three months, the students built and worked on their own creations that culminated in a day of voting.  For our Tuesday group, we had a group of fifth and sixth graders that won with their creation of the Deerlake Mall.  The winners were McKenzie Baruth, Samantha Grosz, Avery Miller, Oscar Anderson, Emilie Lindgren, Elizabeth Boschee, and Addyson Baruth. The Thursday group that won was Addison Kilcoin and Farah Knudson and their custom home. They all did a great job, and there was a really good atmosphere with very few issues. The biggest issue is not enough time to build. There was a moan or a groan when it was time to clean up. Thanks to all the parents who let their child participate and to those that donated snacks.
