Upcoming Events
Cobbles Science Night
5:45 pm - 8:30 pm
On behalf of the Penfield Cobbles PTA Science Night Committee, I would like to invite you to join us on April 15, 2020 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm at Cobbles Elementary School for our annual PTA Science Night. Every year, the Cobbles PTA hosts this family event designed to expose students grades K-5 and their families to STEM topics though various hands on activities and demonstrations. We set up stations around the school and encourage community groups and businesses to join us. It provides students the chance to explore their curiosity and also gives you an opportunity to promote your programs to families in the area. We love having the Robotics team come every year, it is always a huge attraction for the students. Last year we had you in the band room, which we will try to do again this year. Please let me know if you have other space requests. We look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you so much!
