Science Club meets twice a month, with one session for students in grades 2-5, and one for kindergartners and first graders. The split schedule provides children in all grades a chance to do exciting hands-on science projects, with a little differentiation for age-appropriate learning experiences. Meetings are generally a Tuesday (grades 2-5) and the next day, Wednesday (K-1), toward the end of the month. Dates are posted for the rest of the year for leader sign-ups, and student sign-ups will continue to be published one week prior to the meeting.
Families are required to fill out one permission slip (covers any Science Club sessions during the academic year), and to sign students up on this site each month so there is a roster for the front office and teachers. Spaces for student registration will open the week prior to Science Club each month. Each sign-up closes approximately 24 hours before the session so the front office can notify teachers which students are attending Science Club the next day.
Volunteers can suggest activities they are interested in leading, or volunteer as an assistant for one or more sessions. Science Club meets from 3:40-5:00pm (if you are leading the session, please arrive early to set up). Meetings are in Ms. Foley's room (room 16, last classroom on the left straight down the hall from the main school entrance) for both the grades 2-5 session and the K-1 group.
If you sign up to lead a session, please consider covering both sessions that month with the same topic, though this isn't a requirement. Possibilities include biology (nature walks, animals, pond water microscopy), physics (rockets, optics, magnets), engineering (taking things apart, building machines), and more!
