Welcome to the 2019-2020 WildStang Robotics Team. If you are new to this program; Welcome! To all returning members of the team, Welcome back! There is a fantastic group of returning students and parents, combined with the new students and parents joining the team, we anticipate this being another great year!

The first official meeting/class is Monday, August 19th. Class meets from 5:30 PM-8:30 PM at MacArthur Middle School (700 Schoenbeck Road, Prospect Heights). Please drop your student at the front entrance of the building; students may enter and leave through the main door. Students are required to sign-in for attendance at every class meeting. Students should be sure to sign in before class begins. Class begins promptly at 5:30pm with announcements and assignments for the upcoming week; please drop your son/daughter off with enough time to sign in and be settled before class begins. If your student will be absent from class for any reason, please email Mr. Wong (jonathan.wong@d214.org). This is a graded class, and attendance is reported per district’s policy.

The WildStang annual BBQ cookout is Monday, August 26th starting at 5:45 PM. Students are required to attend, and all parents/families are invited to join in, meet the teachers and mentors involved in the program and learn more about WildStang. We look forward to seeing you there!
