Bryant Families,

We wanted to take a minute and ask for your help in an issue we are hearing from a large portion of our students. They are struggling getting back into the swing of school four days a week and are extremely tired at the end of each day. We expected this but are asking that you help us with some aspects at home. It is extremely important to get enough sleep and many are reporting they are on devices until the early hours of the morning. Please try to keep devices turned off and in a separate room. There is also a way to talk to service providers to limit access during nighttime hours. We appreciate your help with this! If you have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Mrs. Klock

Take Home Paper Circuits


Next week students will receive a take home science kit. The kit includes:

  1. Instructions (with a link to informational videos about electricity and building a paper circuit)
  1. Template (varies by grade level)
  2. Copper tape
  3. Diodes (miniature light bulbs)
  4. Battery (potential choking hazard)
  5. Binder clip

Please encourage your students to watch the videos and then work with these materials to complete a circuit in the next couple of weeks. The instruction website also links to a padlet to share projects with other students.

Have fun with hands-on exploration of electricity. A big thank you to the Baker Memorial Science Foundation for providing these materials.
