Robotics Education & Competition Foundation
Inspiring students, one robot at a time

Black Rock has two teams of fourth and fifth graders competing in VEX tournaments in Longmont this winter. In the VEX Competitions, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams from around the world in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels; local champions go on to compete against the best in the world at VEX Worlds each April!

Spread the word! Kindergarten registration for the 2017/2018 school year is now open and continues through January 17th.

Online registration and information found here

It's time to get ready for the Black Rock Elementary Spelling Bee! The first round of the Spelling Bee was a written spelling test, administered on 6th and 9th of January. Those students who correctly spelled 21 of the 25 words, will advance to the final round of our school Spelling Bee on January 31st, after school. The winner of our school's Spelling Bee will go on to compete at the Scripps Colorado State Spelling Bee in March.
