Quarter 2

We are off to a great start this quarter with both students and staff working hard. We are so proud of our successful students and are also gracious for our community's continued support and patience.

Study Island & i-Ready

As our school year is progressing quickly, it is important for students to reinforce learned skills through our interactive platforms; Study Island & i-Ready. We also encourage our students to spend time reading leisurely because our improved reading comprehension and vocabulary translate to the classroom.

Open Enrollment for school year 2020-2021

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your student(s) in Osceola Science Charter School! Osceola Science Charter School is a STEM-focused, tuition-free, K-8 public charter school. We are here to serve our community by offering a unique educational experience that prepares students for college and the careers of the future.

Updates from the classroom

Mr. McClellan's Science Spotlight

Fri Oct 18, 2019

“This past week we have been getting ready for our move, but we still packed in some fun experiments to stimulate your children’s curiosity in scientific investigation.

First, we challenged one class with a fascinating homopolar motor demo and had them ask questions as to what they wanted to know more about. Questions are the first part of any good scientific investigation. We looked at what we did know and then explored some of the questions for this advanced group of thinkers, to further engage their inspiration for investigation and research. They seemed very mentally engaged in their thinking and questions. Question: Does the earth have a magnetic field generated by electric currents?

Secondly, we had another group learn how water can defy gravity with capillary action like trees do – and then a little about how chromatography works making a colorful display on a coffee filter using Vis-à-vis pens. Afterwards, this same group watched another example of a white volcano from another planet erupt – mmm… maybe like on Mars? Do any of us know what the lava looks like coming out of that volcano? White? Or maybe red, since it IS the “red planet”. Later, we showed how water can expand by showing the kids the results from a frozen coke can; since we were discussing how weathering can take place in rocks by freezing water.

Next, we see another group learning more about surface tension which other classes enjoyed doing earlier this month. Question: Is surface tension the REAL reason a Basilisk Lizard can walk across water?

Finally, we see a picture of Mr. McClellan challenging some students on “How does a siphon work?” Check out their science journals to see if they recorded it with diagrams and can explain it. Hey, now we know a quick way of draining our fish tanks. Super!! Miles of smiles whenever we do science. Right?
