Welcome to Rio Rancho Middle School Automation and Robotics

Hello, My name is Allen Clupny
Just a bit of information about me. I am a retired member of the U.S. Air Force. While there I was an electronic and mechanical technician working on various aircraft systems and sub-systems. Additionally, I worked at Intel in equipment maintenance, process and operations. All that to say I'm new to teaching, but not technology concepts. This is my second year at RRMS teaching Robotics. I am grateful for all the teachers and administration who continue to help me become the teacher best suited for your students. 

The Next Week (Oct 16-20)
7/8th Grade 
-  This week the students will be given new vocabulary words on Monday and Wednesday. Friday will be a quiz on those terms.
- Additionally, the students will be presenting their robot presentations.
6th Grade (Intro To Robotics) 
- This week the students will continue working on their Power Point Presentations. Thursday they will start presenting to the class. This should take us through Tuesday of next week.
All Classes

 If your student does their work everyday they will succeed. It's about being consistent.

 This class is designed to be more like a job. As any (employee), students are expected to work well every day, all day. In that vein of thought, daily grades will be worth 50 points and tests will be worth the same. (However, the Final and PowerPoint presentation are worth 100 points.). 10 points will taken after a student is notified the first time he/she is off task. Additional points (10 each time) will be taken with each time a student is off task.I will have posters on the wall to remind students off these facts in the next couple of weeks.
