Team Photo on Jan. 22

Hello everyone,

Our team photo will be taken on January 22 at 2:45 in Mrs. Jones’ classroom. If your child doesn’t usually practice on Mondays, please have him/her come. Students can practice with partners for events and then stay until 3:30 or you can leave with parents after the picture. I’ll have cookies and juice for the kids as a snack.

Our team shirts should be in by that date…hopefully!

Pizza Party Cancelled for Now

Everyone loves a “snow day”….unless there is an amazing group of students planning to meet that day! Our pizza party / debriefing session will need to be postponed for now. Next week is a holiday – so no practice. My classroom is available after school for supervised practices. Please let me know if you want to schedule a practice on another day until we get back to our regular Monday practices. Monday practices will resume on January 22.

I’m sure that all students are working hard at home to practice and study their events. Thank you for taking time to ensure they are getting ready for our first competition on March 24th…it is right around the corner!

 

Science Olympiad Update

Happy December!

I am so very proud of the work the team is doing to prepare for our competitions! I have seen great team work, communication, collaboration, and self-motivation in all students. THANK YOU to the amazing parents who are coaching this year. I know how much time this involves and appreciate you! Here are some important messages/information for parents and students:

Competition Dates: March 24th (Walton High) and May 12 (KSU) 

T-shirt order forms were sent home today and are due by December 18th

No Science Olympiad on December 18th – Have a wonderful winter break! 

January 8th will be a “progress meeting” instead of a practice day. ALL members should plan to attend from 2:30 -3:30 for a time to share our progress, get to know each other better, and to have some pizza and drinks. There will be a $2 cost for pizza and drinks. If parent coaches can come…that would be great too!

 

 

 

First Practice Success!!!

Thank you to all of the students and parents who came to practice on Monday! I think it went well. The first few practices are always a bit bumpy. Once the kids get more comfortable with their events and expectations, they tend to soar.

Thank you for the snack donation…BIG hit! If you have not signed up for snack, please do so using the link on this site.

The Water Rocket team is in need of 2 liter COKE product bottles. Please send in your empty/clean bottles to Mrs. Jones’ classroom. Thank you!

I’ll be attending a coaches meeting this week and will send out any new or updated information as needed.

Thank,

Kelly Jones

Placement for the Events

The events for this year are all very exciting! I know each student will put forth their best effort to make our team shine. Event placement is not an easy task. I must consider the sessions for both county and state to make sure that no student has overlapping events. I also consider the top three choices of students and work very hard to ensure they each get at least one of their top choices. I will be placing event descriptions and directions online and contacting parent coaches. We will begin practice on Monday, October 2nd. If the parent coaches prefer to practice outside of school, I can send all materials home with you.

Parents, please sign up for snacks. The sign up is online. Click on the link on the home page. 

 

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 Science Olympiad Team Members!

Students, please respond to this form by Friday, September 15th, to tell us which 3 events that you are most interested in being a member. Look at each event and read the description given before deciding on your top 3. Returning Science Olympiads, it is VERY HELPFUL if you select at least one of your events from last year so that you can be the expert and work with a new member this year. Please see Mrs. Jones if you have any questions. 

Students, please post a welcome video on this Flipgrid. You can see Mrs. Jones’ video as an example. Reply to the others to welcome them to the team!

Parents, please subscribe to this site with your email. Thanks!
