Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!
Wow, another awesome year of school is coming to a
close. What a great year this has been! Most of you know that for most
of my career I taught middle school science. I continue to enjoy
learning about science and I take pride in how popular our Turtleback
Science Fair has become. I would love to see many more students
participate in the Science Fair. Please consider spending some time with
your child(ren) this summer researching some great science fair topics.
Attached to the newsletter below is the new science fair packet for
2016-2017! I hope you all have a wonderful summer with family and
friends. I will see you in August!
