Engaging students with LIVE Science!
We believe in creating a school environment that motivates children to learn. We are steadily building our community rooms to provide a variety and depth of experiences for children that will be rich in opportunities that help build interest, skills, attention, and a permanent love of learning and investigation.
Opportunities to explore and investigate in science can be found in our hallways, outdoors, and in designated areas of each classroom. Children will be able to explore the elements of water, rock, soil, bubbles, oxygen, surface, depth, buoyancy, water tension, animals, and many other areas that lead to science inquiry and ways of knowing. Don’t be surprised if your child comes home talking about a new friend that’s a turtle or fish! Children are sure to be inspired to investigate, write stories, and fill their science journal with exciting facts and creative stories by their participation in the “live” science areas.

Stop in and see our freshwater aquarium that has 35 fish and our freshwater pond that houses turtles, fish, and plants for children to investigate. We look forward to the many inquiries children will make in learning hands on in our “live” science areas. We have guide books, magnifying glasses, sketch paper, story paper, a flip video, a digital camera, an Intel Blue Microscope, fiction and non-fiction science and literature-based books for children to use and enjoy throughout their learning day as they get an up close and personal with science content.
If you are interested in science and would like to share something with us or add to our exhibits, please let us know. We are also looking for people to help us further develop plant and design our outdoor science/learning areas.
