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.
