Math and Science Conference

The Miami University and Greene School Math/Science Conference is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, April 22nd, from 9:00- 11:45 a.m. Greene School students are given the opportunity to interact with instructors and each other as they explore mathematics and science using critical thinking skills and hands-on manipulatives.

Nurse's Corner: Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies are a reaction to substances such as plant pollen, mold, weeds, grasses, flowers or trees. Tree pollen counts are highest in spring, and often trigger an allergic response in people, including sneezing, stuffy/runny nose, itchy, red, watery, swollen eyes, headaches, feeling tired, or itching ears. Hopefully, with a few tips, we can enjoy the spring season!


There are some things you can do to help your child decrease his/her symptoms:

Have your child wash his or her hands and face after coming inside, and before going to bed to remove allergens

Wash bed linens weekly

Keep windows closed during high pollen counts


Additionally, there are some over-the-counter relief methods:

Try rinsing nasal passages with a saline solution.

Flush eyes after coming indoors with sterile water from a squeeze bottle

Use a cool compress across irritated eyes

Talk to your doctor about using an antihistamine or decongestant

Camp Invention is coming to Sycamore Community School District!

Since 1990, Camp Invention has taken summer fun and transformed it from ordinary to extraordinary!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades 1st-6th. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on June 5, 2017 with Chris Gutermuth serving as Director of the Launch program!

Here is how young innovators will be spending their time:


  • Engaging creative thinking to design and build their own duct tape creations

  • Experiencing the power of rocket science by building and launching rubber band rockets

  • Exploring aerodynamics to blast water rockets made from plastic bottles more than 50 feet in the air

  • Taking apart nonworking machines and devices to investigate their inner operations


All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun!


Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns ensuring that one program team member is in place for every eight children.


Register on or before March 20, 2017 using promo code Discover25 to receive $25 OFF the base price of $225. Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention t-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332 to secure your child’s spot today!
