After School Activity Bus

As a reminder, students may take home "after school activity bus"  if they plan to stay after school for any clubs, sports, practices, homework club, etc.  There are two buses each day, picking students up in the front of the building at 3:45 and 4:45.  "How do I know which after school activity bus I take home?"   Mention to the bus driver where you live and that you are not sure which after school bus you should take home.  Our bus drivers will tell you which bus to get on.  If you are taking the late bus home for the first time and are not sure when you should get off the bus, let the bus driver.  He should let you know which stop to get off.  

THERE WILL NOT BE A 4:45 LATE BUS ON FRIDAYS, unless there is a special request by our athletics department.  Always check with your coach, on the athletics web page, on the daily announcements or on schoology for additional information in regards to after school practices and other activities.

Science-Skills Boot Camp Preps Young Scientists

Two junior high science teachers, Dr. Brontman and Mrs. Koerner are currently running a two-week science boot camp. "This unit will help support kids becoming proficient in the fundamental lab skills, scientific processes, and content needed to progress through this year's science curriculum," notes Dr. Brontman. "Students will be functioning like scientists, learning and discovering things that may impact real-life scenarios," continues Dr. Brontman. "This is all part of implementing the newly aligned Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) curriculum. The K-12 science standards provide students an internationally-benchmarked science education and prepare them for college and careers." Dr. Brontman and Mrs. Koerner will be presenting findings at the November Illinois Science Teachers Association Conference.
