Newsletter April 2023



BREAKFAST begins in the cafeteria at 7:55AM



**EFFECTIVE  JANUARY  23, 2023**

In an attempt to help with traffic safety the Oshkosh Police Department is implementing the following change on the corner of Bismarck Street and Eagle Street:  

If you are going East on Bismarck you are required to take a right hand turn.  
Police officers will be out to assist with this new change.

~ Please Slow Down ~

The corner of Bismarck and Eagle Streets can be especially dangerous for our students before and after school.  

Please slow down and watch for pedestrians. 

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students safe!

FIRST Lego League Challenge

Dear Students and Parents,

We are currently accepting applications for the FIRST Lego League (FLL) Tipler and ALPs for the 2023-2024 competition season.  FIRST is a non-profit organization devoted to helping young people in grades 4-8 to discover and develop a passion for science, technology, engineering and math.  Participants will learn how to master skills and concepts to aid in learning science and technology through innovative projects and robotics competitions while gaining valuable career and life skills.  For more information about FLL please visit their website at
The FLL Season Kick-off event will be in early August (date to be announced) and the team typically meets for one full week in August, and additional nights as needed, depending on coach availability. Occasional summer field trips may be scheduled and are not mandatory but we hope everyone can participate.  

The meeting time for the Tipler/ALPs teams during the school year will all be after school in Tipler’s Tech Ed room (basement, below the gym), on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00– 6:00 pm, with additional dates as needed to prepare for competition.
The Wisconsin Regional competitions are in mid-November-December, with additional tournaments if the team advances. Sectionals are typically in late December, and the State Championship is typically in late February. Tournament dates will be announced by Wisconsin FLL later this fall.
Please contact to request an application for the 2023-2024 season. Applications are due Friday, April 28.
Thank you,
Coach Amy
