If you are interested in registering your child for the program next year, we strongly suggest that you attend the meeting either in the afternoon or evening. At the 3:30 meeting, the coaches, Ms. Wolsky, Mr. Barba and Ms. Richa, will provide information on the pilot this spring and go over the details and requirements for the program for next year. At the 7:30 pm meeting, the parent coordinators, Beth Brock and Emilie Zaslow, will be present and provide information and answer questions for parents.
The Odyssey of the Mind Program will be open to students in grades 1 through 5 at Tuscan. Students will be part of a team that will prepare for competition during the 2013/2014 academic year. We are also exploring the possibility of putting together a Creative Problem Solving group for kids that are interested in doing the activities but not competing.
Odyssey of the Mind is a program that encourages the development of creative problem solving and critical thinking skills through teamwork and competition.
