VEX Robotics Fundraiser
Our VEX Robotics club, led by Mr. Madrigal is one of José de Diego's proudest achievements. Kits and motors and hardware, however, cost a great deal. Our PTO has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for supplies and beginning Friday, January 30th, they will be selling raffle tickets, for $2 each, as an additional fundraiser for the Robotics Club. Each ticket will also gain the purchaser an entry into a raffle for an iPad Mini, to be held at our March 6th PTO meeting.
