- Field Trip- We will be visiting the Portland Art Museum, the Historical U.S. Bank, and the Hellenic American Cultural Center on Wednesday, December 17th.
- Winter Showcase- We are still undecided, but please join us for what has been one of the year's most exciting performances! It will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 18th.
Students are encouraged to practice typing for 10 minutes each night. The link to our practice site is chpcs6.typingclub.com
- White Shirts- Please send a white t-shirt with your child tomorrow if you would like them to participate in the science-fair t-shirt display. T-shirts must be blank white and will be drawn on with sharpie. Contact me if you cannot provide any shirts but would like your child to participate.
- State Competition Requirements- Wow, was I vastly underrating the steps required to prepare for state! Students were given forms to complete and submit if their experiment involved harmful chemicals, humans, or vertebrates. Please check with your child to see if they completed all the paperwork they received (if applicable).
- Take pictures- Take pictures of the experiment every step of the way! This is a crucial part of the process! They will want pictures to display on their boards in January.
- Notebook work- All research, notes, observations, etc. should be entered into their Science Fair Notebook. This will be a crucial piece of the process for our budding scientists!
Science Class- A simple project
Energy Kits- Students are bringing home a box of materials designed to help reduce energy consumption at home. Please have your child explain the activity, watch the installation DVD, and install the items provided. There is a yellow form for you to fill out together and return to school. Please help us teach our students some simple ways to be better stewards of our energy resources!
Tests and Notes and Studying-
Energy Quiz- Tomorrow we will have a short 4-question quiz on the topic of energy. Students may use their notes during the quiz, and all notes have been added to the class website in the science section.
Human Body Quiz- Was originally scheduled during the week of Veteran's Day, but was canceled and has yet to be rescheduled. This may show up later in another round of "final exams."
Enjoy your holiday!
