First LEGO League Robotics
Fall programs are offered for both 5th and 6th grade at Faxon Elementary, with a more enriched project and tournament experience. Front Porch coordinates the program curriculum and provides volunteer Robotics coaches, to guide and support Faxon teachers who coach as part of the team. In collaboration with KC Stem, program goals are designed to fit the progress of Faxon students, who love this addition to their curriculum!
Each PAL (Partner Active in Learning) mentors two students at Faxon Elementary School. There are currently 85 PALS, all of whom are part of the principal’s team to help raise the academic achievement of her students. PALS help specifically with reading and math skills, as they also give their students the benefit of a caring adult who returns consistently in supportive friendship.
