Science 2020-2021

Our Science team of Ms. Roberts and Mrs. Weisshahn are hard at work finding new ways to make Science engaging during this time of distance learning.   They would greatly appreciate any help with the following. 

 

  • Periodically, they will need helpers to assemble and distribute take home science kits providing students hands-on opportunities to explore science from home.  
  • Science is looking for an Outdoor Classroom (ODC) maintenance liaison to schedule and manage safe and socially distanced workdays.  
  • ODC Gardening Maintenance helpers are needed to help with cleaning the ODC (raking leaves, weeding and pruning).
  • Finally, the Science lab towel laundry is starting to pile up.  In previous years, they've been able to recruit parent volunteers that have been helping in the classroom.  With distance learning, we're looking for folks to sign up here to pick up laundry at school, wash at home and return to school.   If you are able to help, please sign up for the laundry position and we will try to arrange a schedule amongst the volunteers.

Laundry Helpers Signed Up: 14 / 30

The science lab towels need to be washed once a month. We don't want this to fall on one person, so the more volunteers the better, even if you can only help out once, please consider signing up. The helper will need to pick up the laundry at the end of a week to take home to wash and return to school at the beginning of the next week.
