Original Works/ Last Call for Scientists!

Posted Oct 18, 2017 | Category: Everything Else

Original Works takes a work of art created by your child in art class and turns it into products you and your family can enjoy for years to come.  There are so many fun items from which to choose:  magnets, note cards, aprons, mugs, shirts, tote bags, and so much more.  Your child will bring home their image and an order form so that you can purchase gifts of original art for the Winter Holidays! In addition to the artwork they did in art class this week, your child will be bringing home an order form and price sheet from Original Works.  If you’d like to place an order, please fill out the form and include payment along with the artwork. Place these three items back into the plastic bag or a folder and return the school office by November 8th, attention Julie Novak.  If you have any questions, please contact Julie at: blythe408@aol.com

Last call for scientists! Time is running out to register your child for Central’s Science Fair!

Science Fair Cheat Sheet

  • Register your child online by October 20th at goo.gl/forms/xjnNkh7RabUAnNFU2
  • If they don’t quite know their experiment yet, you can still register them and enter “Scientist Still Thinking” as your title.
  • Mrs. Royer and Mrs. Schrier have lots of ideas for experiments, so if you still can’t think of something, just send us an email and we can help! jhepker@prescottmed.com and rachelschrier@hotmail.com
  • Once you have a project confirmed, your title can be emailed to Jennie Royer (jhepker@prescottmed.com) by November 1st and still be included in the program.
  • You can work alone or with a partner.  No groups of 3 or above.
  • You get a free display board!
  • The fair is being held on Tuesday, November 7th from 6-8pm.

 

Final note from the committee: This is a special event at Central School and an exciting opportunity for your students.  We realize it’s a busy time, but the experiment itself need not take more than an hour (and might even take less!)…and it’s a great way to merge fun and learning.  AND, this is 4th and 5thgrade classes last chance to do the Science Fair since it’s an every other year event.  Experiments can be as simple as “What’s the most common color of Skittles candy?” or “Does my dog like beef food or chicken food better?”  It’s mainly about learning to use the scientific method and encouraging curiosity in our youngsters!  Get to the fair!
