Spring Break, Before School Care, Earth Day Assembly : March 30, 2017

Spotlight on Learning
Congratulations to all the participants in the Science Fair!  We are so proud of you. Participants have been working on their projects since the beginning of November and their hard worked showed! There was an incredible range of projects: water quality, best criteria for a successful bottle flip, bee pollination and exploring anxiety.  In addition to deepening their learning about science related topics of interest, lessons of perseverance, teamwork, organization and time management were also gleaned from this experience!
