SCIENCE FAIR! FEBRUARY 1 - REGISTER AND GET YOUR PROJECTS STARTED!
It is that time again! Time to start your Science Fair Projects! The Science Fair is on the evening of Thursday Feb 1, 2018 6:30-8:30pm
All grades are welcome! All Projects are welcome! There is no project too small for the Science Fair. Your kids can work solo or in groups. It is all about putting a little more science in our kids lives. If you are stuck and can't come up with an idea, just email Keelin or Nat and we can get you started.
We need help setting up and judging, so please email us if you can help with that. Also, if you have a child that needs SSL hours, we need 3-4 teenagers to help with the event.
PTA Meeting/ Community Conversation About Race & Equity in the Whitman Cluster
Please join us in the Media Center Tuesday, February 6th at 7pm to participate in our 2nd of 3-session focused on race and equity in our community. In our sessions, we engage in deep discussion, offer time for introspection, provide tangible tools that participants can use to extend their learning to conversations with family, friends and colleagues. In our October session, we introduced the implicit bias. On February 6th, we will participate in an experiential learning and deepen our discussion in the session titled: Implicit Bias: Taking the Work to the Next Level.
There is no need to have attended the first session - all participants are welcome. Complimentary childcare for Wood Acres students will be provided by Bar-T in the All Purpose Room. Due to the level of participation last year, we are asking people to register and indicate if childcare is needed. Sign up HERE
