FINAL WEEK TO REGISTER FOR STEM exCEL
The deadline to register for the after-school enrichment classes with the Computer and Coding Club is Sunday, September 22. Classes start next week. You can register and learn more by clicking HERE. For questions, contact programs@ravensworthpta.org.

3D Game Design (Grades 3-6, Thursdays 3:30-4:30PM): Students learn to design and build their own game, while simultaneously learning programming logic, level design, art and animation. The final product is their own game that can be played on any computer, along with all project packages so they may continue creating at home.

Minecraft Modding (Grades 1-6, Fridays 3:30-4:30PM): Minecraft Modding teaches students important problem-solving and design skills by making changes to the popular game itself. Our instructors offer individualized attention and mentorship throughout our course, so students will learn at their pace following their personal learning style and interests.


CHESS CLUB
Chess Club is now enrolling for the fall session! Chess Club is open to grades 2nd-6th and meets on Wednesdays after school. All levels welcome! Beginners will learn the basics while advanced students learn strategy, then groups break up for tournament-style play, with a focus on improving skills and good sportsmanship. Check your Wednesday folder on the first week of the semester for registration info or click here for more information. For questions, contact chessclub@ravensworthpta.org.


RAVENSWORTH PTA DIRECTORY UPDATE
In May 2018, Governor Northam approved HB-1 Scholastic records, prohibiting access to directory information, which establishes that “no school shall disclose the address, phone number, or email address of a student”. As a result, the PTA will no longer be printing a student directory.  

 

We Can't Do It Without You!

PTA activities and initiatives could not succeed without the hard work of our volunteers. With the start of the 2019-20 school year, please consider giving your time by volunteering for the many wonderful events we have in store. For more information on how to help, please email outreach@ravensworthpta.org.
