HFE Math, Science and Technology
Quarter 1 School Year 2015-2016
Our school is a learning community built around the methods of math, science, and technology as a means for personal discovery. We embrace the senses of wonder and curiosity that underlie these themes.
This e-newsletter is to share with our students, families, and our Hall Fletcher community a snapshot of the activities and lessons that our students are participating in that are focused on math, science, and technology.
We will be sharing a new e-newsletter each quarter in order to share how our theme is built on wonder and curiosity, implemented with rigor, and experienced with joy.
