Glad to hear from you! Our entire school participates in 'Science Alive' this time every year. We have a Fall Festival and invite all the parents to eat with their children and to walk around the halls and look at all the experiments that are displayed there.
Basically every teacher from Pre-K to 5th grade must come up with a Science experiment using the 3-fold presentation board, showing the experiment they performed and all the scientific steps they took in order to accomplish this and their results. I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them where you can see.
Naturally the younger students don't adhere to the strict Science Standards for research, but it's a beginning for them to understand. Every room has a table outside in the hallway and displays their project.
In the afternoon around 2:00 we have our first party of the year. Parents bring basically Halloween goodies for the kids to eat and have a good time and then when it's over, they leave and take the kids with them. It is considered 1 of our 3 parties for the year. If a lot of the parents are there, then when they leave they take the kid. The kids love this party. Naturally in the bible belt a school doesn't really want to say they are having a Halloween party, but at the end of the day, that is what it is. A fun time was had!
Stay tuned for pictures tomorrow!
