Hello Coolidge Corner School Families and Friends,
We are one day away from our February Break! We hope everyone has a chance to take this time to unplug, connect with loved ones, and enjoy the time away from school. Please see below for a few updates about Hive Pride Day, Hive Reads Challenge, and the Science Fair.
Hive Pride Day
Tomorrow, February 15th, is Hive Pride Day at Coolidge Corner School. Students are encouraged to wear the Hive gear and/or black and yellow.
In addition to Hive Pride Day we are celebrating filling our Hive with examples of Working Hard, Being Kind, and Helping Others. Bevo, our school mascot, will be visiting some classrooms to share congratulations for all the work all our students have done to fill up our hive with examples of being positive and strong community members.
Our Kindergarten-grade 2 students will watch a movie in the multipurpose room in the morning and our grades 3-5 students will watch a movie in the afternoon. Grades 6-8 students will be receiving extra recess time. If you are sending snack in with your child tomorrow please send "dry" snack items so that they can eat them in the multipurpose room should their snack time overlap with their movie time.
Hive Reads Challenge
Over the February break we are challenging each of our students to get "caught reading" while they are away from school. We are hoping students spend at least 30 minutes each day of break reading or being read to. As part of this challenge we want to see all your pictures of students and families reading together over the break. If you take a picture over the break of your student(s) reading and send it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) we will be sure to show them on the big display screen in the main lobby after break to celebrate #HiveReads!
2019 Coolidge Corner Science Fair
Saturday March 2, 2019
8:30 AM- 12:30 PM
Coolidge Corner School
345 Harvard St., Brookline, MA
Please sign up and join us for the CCS Science Fair! What do you wonder about? The weather? Renewable energy? The ocean? Animals? Your brain? Why plants need water to grow?
Wow, there are so many cool things to wonder about! Please pick your favorite question and explore it in your science project. At the science fair students can present their science projects to professional scientists and to the community. Its main purpose is to get you excited about science by doing it rather than simply learning about it. A scientist first asks a question about some aspect of the world and then tries to find its answer. At the science fair, each student presents a project, both visually and orally, with the question and answer displayed in an interesting way. Students should be able to explain their projects and answer questions.
The science fair will also include a science activity expo, where students will have an opportunity to see and interact with cool technologies, devices, and scientists.
8:30 - Registration/Set up open
9:00-12:00 - The Science Fair and Expo are open to the public
9:00-11:30 (Judging time) - The students present their projects to the judges, view the other projects, and visit the activity expo
12:00-12:30 (Awards Ceremony) - Please come cheer for the winners!
