KNEX Competition Club Registration


Dear 6th, 7th, and 8th grade parents,

We understand that the next two weeks are very busy for many of our students - with Aladdin's practice continuing and the Science Fair and Future Cities competitions coming to fruition. Therefore, we felt it was in the best interests of the students to delay the start of the club until January 23rd. This only moves the club back one week, since we would not have met on the MLK holiday. We hope that the change will ensure that those students who have deadlines the week of the 16th are able to concentrate on those obligations.

We are excited to have a STEM competition at the school level this year and look forward to sending several teams to the Stem Design Challenge at the DCIU in March to represent Saint Andrew School. If you have already signed your child up for the new session of this club, there is no further action needed on your part at this time. If you are interested in signing your child up, here is the link to follow to do so. Any questions, please contact one of us.

Thank you for your interest and understanding,

Mrs. Conners, Mrs. DeRitis, Ms. Zdinak
