Bonjour, readers! Today, we have some very exciting news! We have new tires!!! We are taking are old ones off and putting the new ones on today. We can not wait to see how they will ride on the track. We are expecting a good reaction between our car and the tires. We also have fixed our wheel covers and surprisingly, they look really well. They really add quality to our car. We are still working on more names for our car. We thought we were pretty sure about "Black Flash", but some of our members have certain commentary and feedback. Some of which came up with names that weren't even necessary! If you have any ideas for names for our car, don't be afraid to comment them below. We would love to hear your feedback!
Reminders: Our last day for popsicles on the elementary side is today! Our last day for the middle school side is tomorrow! We have made so much progress on our car , thanks to you guys. We haven't done this all by ourselves! We are thankful for the people who gave us insight about our car and ideas for it as well. Your feedback matters! If we decide to have any more changes, we will put them on the blog. Our race is only 31 days away, we believe. We can't wait !! Again, thank you so much for feedback and sponsorship. You have helped us a lot!
With more to come,
We were not able to do a blog update yesterday, due to us testing our batteries. This is the blog for yesterday and will just have what we did yesterday. We are also making another update for today, so try not to get confused and flustered! We worked testing the batteries and making sure they worked. Here are some reminders for you guys: Our last day for popsicles on the elementary side is Wednesday. Our last day for popsicles on the middle school side is Thursday. Make sure you have your pre orders in, little grizzlies! Also, make sure you bring your 50 cents! We are counting on you guys to get some popsicles to help us out! We are thankful for the people who have bought and ordered popsicle from us so far. We are sad to see it all end. Even at the end of the day, it was chaos ,due to certain grades leaving early. Thank you little grizzlies and big grizzlies, who have helped us so much.
With more to come,
Happy Monday, Grizzlies! Today, we are very busy! We are trying to get so much done at once by dividing it up among all of us. We are working on counting money from our popsicle sale that occurred on Friday. We are also working on the back flap and the wheel covers. We are going to try driving the car today, it depends if it is raining. We are still working on composing our sponsor letter and addressing envelopes for the letters. Thursday, I discussed the major changes that may or may not be happening. I still have ideas that may or may not improve our blog. When we get sponsors, we usually give them our website in sponsor letter. We give them the website address, so they have a better idea of who we are and what we do. That being so, changes are necessary at this point. Our race is only 32 days away, I believe. It's not that far away! We have been pushing through since the beginning of this year to try to improvements our car without using a whole lot of money. We also decided on a car name! Que the drum roll, our car name is "The Black Flash".
Come get your popsicles!!!! Tomorrow, we are selling popsicles on the Middle School side. If you need to see any upcoming events that we are involved in, you can view it on the home page. We have discussed the idea of having another spirit night in October! We still need to raise money for our car and we will still have time before the race! If we do choose to have the spirit night, please come out and support your Green Power team and your school. You would be helping us out a ton! We already have had a lot of help from you guys! Keep the help coming along! Remember: Popsicle sale tomorrow! Our race is in 32 days and we are thankful for the help we have gotten so far.

Today, we are working on finishing the wheel covers. We are almost done they look great! Our addresses are coming along nicely. We are voting on a different name for our car. We sold over 100 popsicles! Our names that we have so far are great! Change is always good! We are changing the blog up some and our car as well. We are making tons of improvements to our car and our website/blog. We are also delivering pre-orders to the elementary side today! We will make sure they get what the price is worth! Hopefully by Monday, we will have more car name ideas and a better chance at starting over this year for the race. Last year, it was rough and we were just starting too. We tried our best last year to understand what we had to do during the race.
Thanks to everyone who has helped us out with the popsicle sale and bought lots of popsicles. It helps us out a lot and makes us closer to accomplish our goals for this year. We want to be able to win this year and go to the international competition in England. We are glad to be able to have this program and be able to do things that will prepare us for our future. Race is in 35 days!

Today, we are working on comparing our times with the wheel covers and without the wheel covers. We are trying to decide if we are going to use the wheel covers on our car. We are also working on labeling and preparing our sponsor letters . We have found lots of businesses that we seem interested in asking for sponsorship. Also, we will be driving the car today as well. Que the drum roll, we have a winner of the qualifying pushers. Can you guess who it is? It's Thomas! We have someone working on the sponsor letter, so we can put it in the envelopes and send them out before our race on October 31st. Recently as blogger, I have been thinking that we need some more changes. I want to start adding a picture on Friday's blog and I will try to start this week.
Another thing we wanted to do was ask for your guys opinion on each post. After we get the blog at a more popular stake, we wanted to ask some questions each day. We want to do this because it allows us to communicate with you guys and gives us a little more insight on what to do. We are not saying that we are relying on your opinion , but it does matter to us as a team.
Another thing we wanted to add was a poll on Fridays, along with the picture of our progress. After we ask questions Monday-Thursday, we will put a poll up. The poll will include the responses you have left on our posts and will help us make more wise decisions. For example, if I had asked if we should do the wheel covers or not, you would leave a comment under this blog. We would then insert it in a poll and have you guys vote on it. The blog needs more ideas and more vast content. We need to start writing more than a paragraph, explaining what is going on that day. That is all the ideas we have for right now.
Reminder, grizzlies: Popsicle sale on the Middle school side today! Bring your 50 cents and come get your favorite flavor. You are helping us raise money for improvements for our car. Also, we are discussing another spirit night! It's been said that we raised $150 from our last spirit night! You guys really helped us out! We are still thinking about it, but we might have another spirit night on October 13th. It's not official yet, but it's still going through thought process. Thank you guys for you help with the spirit night and the ongoing popsicle sale. We are extremely thankful for the help!
Come back tomorrow for an exciting blog, Grizzlies!
Today, we are working on cleaning and organize the shop. We are making a back flap and fixing the alignment. The team is working on the address letters. Our new nose cone is almost done! We need to clean up the shop as well. Our team made a lot of money yesterday. Our last day to sell popsicles is October 1st, 2015. Race day is coming up!
Happy Tuesday! Today, we are qualifying pushers! To be fair to the rest of the team, anyone who wants to a pusher must do a qualifying test to make sure you're eligible to push and get the car going. Not everyone is meant for pushing, some are really good at it. Being someone who likes change, the blogger wants to make a change to the blog. Only on Fridays, we want to add pictures of the progress of our car. We already add pictures to the website for you to see, but we want you to be able to read and have an idea of what we are doing.
Can you guess what today is? Popsicle sale! Today, we will be on the middle school side selling popsicles. They are all still the same flavor and cost 50 cents. Tomorrow, we will be on the elementary side making sure the lower grades get what they pre ordered. Make sure you bring your money for popsicles! We will make sure we have flavors for you to fill your need. Stop by today at our stand!
Come back tomorrow for another blog!
Today, we are working on the wheel covers, they are coming along nicely. We're cleaning up the shop and covering the new nose cone. We are working on the alignment, because for some reason every time we come back from a weekend they are messed up again. Three people are working on the addresses for our sponsors, we have to do ninety! Mrs Amos called a bicycle shop and we are going to get a claim. Reminder: Popsicle sale tomorrow on the middle school side. Only 50 cents!!! The race is in only 40 days.
Come back tomorrow for another blog!
Happy Friday, Grizzlies! Today, we are in the classroom and it is a half day. We are working on addressing business letters and counting money from yesterday's sell. Yesterday, we were on the middle school side. Today, we were suppose to do pre-orders on the elementary side, but since it is a half day, we are dismissed at 11:30 AM. We have to address business letters, so we can send them to possible donors/ sponsors. All the addresses we collected from the first few weeks of school are the addresses we are sending letter to. Some of them may not sponsor us, but we hope that they will. We really need to make improvements to our car , so we do not have any accidents this year with our car , like last year. Make sure you check out the "Meet the Team" tab! It is up and running!
The bloggers are making some adjustments to the blog! The bloggers are adding pictures on Fridays ( not counting today). Starting next week, we will be adding pictures to the blog. Also, Tuesday is our next sell. We will be on the middle school side. Make sure you come and get some popsicles. Same prices and same flavors as last week. They are only 50 cents! We also have an anonymous donor. Thank you so much for helping us out! We will have a better chance at wining this year!
