In the halls of Sand Point!

Please save the date for the Eight Annual Science Night at Sand Point Elementary on Tuesday, January 29th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Parents, families and the Sand Point Community will come together to observe and celebrate hands on, inquiry-based science that our students have been participating in this year.

On Science Night, we will honor our young learners’ developing curiosity and focused interest in their world. Science Night is an opportunity for all student to authentically, demonstrate their science learning to their community.

Students may present individual science experiments, in which they research and develop a chosen area of science. Please read the project guidelines sent home with your student then if interested, fill out the sign-up sheet and have them turn it in to their teacher by January 23, 2019..

We look forward to seeing all of you the evening of January 29th for this exciting event!
