From the SCIENCE Department

We have heard from a few schools asking how to handle the science materials of those who are changing schools and/or grade levels. Please use the Science Materials Transition Plan as a guide for such cases. This document includes links to inventory sheets and most importantly, directions for the National Geographic Exploring Science books. This document also includes recommendations for transitioning the FOSS materials from Grades 3-5.

Parent Volunteers

Just a reminder as we close out this year. We have a lot of parent volunteers coming in the building. Please be sure if any parent is in here to volunteer, in any capacity, that they complete the parent volunteer form in the front office with Tina. They will need to provide their license.

DOJO Chart

GREAT IDEA from Joy! Here is a chart that maybe teachers could purchase to make a DOJO tracker for next year?
