Weather and Science

 What a crazy weather week. From 58 degrees on Wednesday afternoon to snow on Thursday night. I guess winter hasn’t gone away entirely. Please make sure your students have appropriate clothing to be able to play and study outside no matter what the weather.
   Tuesday is the final day for our Americorps volunteers, Lena and Jacob. They’ve been a great addition to the school, and we’re sorry to see them go. That means the last Tuesday After School Adventure Club is this Tuesday as well.
   I hope you can join us for the Spaghetti Supper on Wednesday, March 21. In addition to the delicious meal, this event is an important fundraiser for the 5th and 6th-grade field trips to Washington, D.C. and Nature’s Classroom. Please come and enjoy a great meal and support a good cause. 
   We have been working with our friend, Ted Watt from the Hitchcock Center for the Environment on science and Project Based Learning this year, and the students and teachers have enjoyed the time, and we’ve all learned a lot. He’ll be coming back four more times this year, thanks to a STARS Grant. Ask your student what they like about Mr. Ted. The Hitchcock Center is open to families and the community second Saturdays of the month, December thru June from 9am-1pm. Stop by and join them for free family science programs from 10-11am each month. Learn more and register at https://www.hitchcockcenter.org/
