Maine Bioscience

During the week of November 16, SMS 6th graders participated in Maine Bioscience Day for the 3rd year in a row. While the experience was a little different this year, students loved learning about local scientists and enjoyed identifying some of their own genetic traits. See the video below for more, with a cameo from our own Mrs Chester!

Student Advocacy Counseling Corner

Hello Scarborough Families!

Happy December! Below please find the December Google Classroom from Student Advocacy. This month's theme is "Positive Mindset". There are a number of links embedded in this classroom. Click around and see what you can find with your child.

Please review the link below for more information:

Your students were given a challenge to encourage them to explore the scene! Here is the challenge!!

1. How many links are there hidden in this December scene? Some are tricky.

2. What is the title of the December Calendar?
3. Name 3 celebrities from the "10 Celebrity Failures" video.
4. What is the title of the music video? And where did you find it?

5. What does Positive Mindset mean to you?

The Counseling Google Classroom is created monthly in hopes of encouraging growth opportunity conversations between students and teachers/families.

We wish you a wonderful holiday season.
