Hello Parents, 
Here is the weekly update for January 21-25, 2013.

General:

-6.3 will be at Winter Camp from Wednesday to Friday. Please make arrangements to get students and their bags to school. The bus leaves at 9am. 
-Parent volunteers have been selected and contacted for Winter Camp for both classes. 
Thank you to all the parents who volunteered!
-Please have Scholastic orders handed in by Thursday, January 25, 2013.
-Please contact Kevin Sonico: kevin.s@calgaryscienceschool.com  if you are interested in being a science fair judge this year. We still need about 10 judges. 

Health:
In the coming months some time in Health class will be spent educating students about body changes during adolescence and other human health related topics.
Prior to winter camp, we wish to have a health lesson on personal hygiene for adolescents. 
Please read the form carefully as there are three options to choose from with regards to your child's participation in these lessons. 
Please return the consent forms Monday, January 21st.

Humanities:

This week, students will continue to work on their provincial government assignments. Students should complete their handouts and begin to develop their lesson for the class in a creative and engaging way early this week. 
We will also begin to look at writing an effective newspaper article. Students will use this knowledge to write an article for the Spectrum about their experience at Winter Camp. 
Please have students share their constellation stories with you at home before attending camp.

Math/Science:
- 6.3 Explorer projects start on Monday. Those students that expressed interest in presenting on Monday should be ready to present. 
The Rubric for the presentation is on Edmodo so presenters may see how they will be assessed.
- 6.4 Explorer Project presentations start on January 28th. 
- If all goes according to schedule, those students selected to go to the CSS Science Fair will be chosen by January 31st, if not sooner.
- Before camp we will finish creating our Recipe for Habitability, which looks at the factors that allow for life on earth…and possible other planets. This is part of a larger Math/Science problem which has students using real numbers and data to select the best options for discovering life outside of our solar system. 

 
Have a great Week, 

John Cadman & Jody Pereverzoff
6.3/6.4 Teaching Team
