WBSD LEGO Legends FLL Robotics Team Celebrate Successful Season

WBSD LEGO Legends FLL Robotics Team Celebrate Successful SeasoThe WBSD LEGO Legends FLL Robotics Team recently ended their season by competing at the Kettering University Remote FLL Qualifier.

Scotch Team members: 5th graders: Hunter DeGrand, Graham Kubiak, Brady May

Roosevelt Team members: 4th graders: Colton Latchaw, Oliver Kohn, Christian Zimnicki

Coaches: Rene Kubiak and Cathi Kohn

The boys built & programmed the EV3 Robot and scored a considerable amount of points in the robot game. Their Innovative Project Design included a custom Tree Run Course and Zipline for Wheelchair Users. They represented WBSD and proudly followed the Core Values set by FIRST LEGO League. They withstood the longest FLL Season in History... through the pandemic & the various curveballs thrown their way.

Following physical distancing, COVID protocols & utilizing creative ways of meeting, this team plowed through the season & made it to a qualifying event. We couldn't be more proud of this group of boys! Way to go LEGO Legends!

More Information from Mr. West

Roosevelt Families,

More Information About Free Summer School

WBSD recently shared the link to sign up for free summer school. See the end of this communication for access to the links. We've received some really good questions regarding the summer school curriculum, how to actually sign up, and whether or not it is actually free. Below are some details that may help with your decision-making process.

The Location

K-4 Summer School with be hosted at Doherty Elementary and Gretchko Elementary

5-7th Grade Summer school will be hosted at West Bloomfield High School 8 - 11 a.m.

The Schedule

  • Summer will be from 9 AM to 12 PM, five days a week. There are two sessions (listed below). You can sign up for one or both. Note: 5th grade time is 8-11am.

  • Session 1 is June 21-July 16 No School on July 5

  • Session 2 is July 16-August 13

  • Summer school is free from 9 AM to 12 PM. If you want your child to take advantage of before/after school care, then there is a cost associated with that.


  • The summer school curriculum will be exciting, new, and fresh for all of our students. It is not merely a review of concepts covered throughout this year.

  • Each 4-week session is theme-based. The first four weeks is based on the theme, Laker Maker, which focuses on creating, designing, innovating, and inventing. The kids will have unique and interesting challenges related to design and innovation throughout the 4 weeks. The next four weeks is based on the theme, Laker Detective, which focuses on problem-solving and using clues to solve mysteries. Both sessions will include guest speakers and other fun experiences related to the themes, and they will also include Lego Robotics.

As the children explore the themes, they will also engage in learning opportunities that are connected to our core curriculum. For example, children will have access to personalized learning opportunities in small groups with an instructor that meets them where they are at and helps them make personal growth in math and literacy skills. Children will also have opportunities to engage in Bridges Math Workplace Games, which are a huge hit with our kids. Meanwhile, there will be extension units of study in reading that are brand new, fresh, and exciting. Finally, our kids will have access to some really great writing experiences, including Claim-Evidence-Reasoning, writing about Science, and creative writing.

Who Should Sign Up?

This free summer school opportunity is for anybody and everybody. It is not designed to be remedial. Rather, it is designed to provide rich and authentic learning experiences for all, while also meeting kids where they are at in their literacy and math journey.

If you are even a little bit interested, I would encourage you to sign up for at least one of the 4-week sessions. Personally, I am excited to sign my son up for the second four-week session. It fits our summer schedule, it sounds really cool, and it gives him additional opportunities to connect with others in a structured environment.

The Registration Process (Summer School is Free, Unless You Want Before/After School Care)

When you click on the links to register (which are available below), there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, please note that the 9 AM-12 PM summer school is free. The only thing that costs money is if you choose to pay for before/after school care.

  1. The system will ask you to set up an account before you can sign up. It does not cost any money to set up an account. There are a few steps involved, but it is not too tricky.

  2. Once you set up the account and begin the registration process, you will see content that says "Fee Details." Under this, there is a late stay and early bird fee. You only have to pay if you want your child to arrive early (before 9 AM) and/or stay later (after 12 PM). Don't let the fee text scare you off. Keep going through the process until it asks you if you want to pay for early bird or late stay. When you get to this point, simply choose to NOT click these options.

  3. You will need your child's student id number to sign up. This can be found in PowerSchool. If you need help accessing this, you can email

  4. If you try to go through the process and you just can't figure it out, please feel free to reach out if you need guidance getting registered. Our office staff can help.

The registration links for summer school are live. If you are interested in your child attending, I would encourage you to sign up as quickly as possible to ensure your child's spot. There are two links below--one for the in-person summer school and one for the virtual summer school.
