Help Us Learn About Force, Motion, and Energy

We have just begun a new unit on force, motion, and energy. We need your help!! We would like for each student to build a hover disk to explore Newton's 1st and 2nd laws using a simple hover disk. We need any used CD's, DVD's, or games that no longer work or you are willing to donate for the sake of science! Also needed are bottle caps with pull up spouts like on dish detergent or certain sports drinks and kids drinks or water. I am posting a picture to give an example. Please collect during the holiday week and send back with your student. We are also asking all staff and other students to donate as well. Thanks for your help!!


If at all possible, at home, please have your child log onto their online digital book and complete any assignments from 6.7AB Energy Sources. The students can also work on this during Bear Time when they have extra time or before and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  


Tutoring is now available on Tuesdays and Thursdays  before and after school. Please let me know if your child would like to take advantage of this. He/she will need a pass to get in the building. Thanks!!
