Our boat race rescue will take place on Thursday, Oct. 19th during the school day. The grade level winners will race during the family picnic at 6 p.m. You do not need to send your boats to school until Oct. 18th at the earliest. 2nd – 5th grade participants: We will be using 5 1/2″ rain gutters for our race course. Your boat must be less than 6 inches wide to fit easily in the rain gutter. I am sorry for the change but that is the widest gutter I could find. I look forward to seeing your creations!
