The Science/Math/Technology Fair
Earlier this week your child should have brought home a packet of information about our upcoming Science/Math/Technology Fair. The fair is scheduled for February 11th. As with any learning experience, we encourage parents to offer guidance, but only minimal support, so that the students do as much of their own work as possible. However, if any parent would like to set-up their own project, we will make space for you. Just call or drop us a note soon.
We are looking for take-apart items for the Science Fair. Do you have any broken electronic or mechanic gadgets such as VCR s, clocks, phones, radios and such? Just drop them off in the office or send them to school with your child. Thanks.
