Good evening Parents,
Here is the weekly update for May 27 - 28, 2013

There is an Outdoor Ed. day trip this Friday, May 31st. Students in Outdoor Ed. must be dropped off at school by 7:45am. 
The bus will return to the school at 4:30pm. 

The 2013 Parent Survey closes on June 2. There is a draw prize to reimburse one enrichment fee, and the class with the highest participation wins a pizza prize. The data is very important for the council and their planning, plus there are some items on the survey that are of particular interest for us.

The Parent Survey can be accessed by logging into the Family Zone on the Calgary Science School website and then

Students will continue to work on completing their novel study and social studies inquiry this week. At this point in time, students should be working to complete their final projects for each assignment as they are due in the next two weeks.
-Novel Study is due June 6th
-Social Studies Inquiry is due June 11th. 
Both assignments are posted on Edmodo, so please review the expectations with your child. The novel study has been changed so that they must only read one novel and complete one project to demonstrate their understanding. The rubric for the novel study has also been posted on Edmodo. 

I have also posted a Social Studies PAT review guide on Edmodo for those students who want to review at home. Students can sign out textbooks and novel study books at the end of each day, but must return them and sign the book back in as they arrive at school in the morning.

Ms. Pereverzoff will be away this week due to a personal family matter.  Mrs. Moir will be in all week to support the students. 

If you have any questions, please email John or Jody. 

This week in Science students are working as individuals or in pairs to design the best wing/airfoil they can. Their creations will be tested in a wind tunnel and the school field. Students have been asked to document their learning over the course of this project. How they do this may vary by student. 
Here are some suggestions generated by both classes:
- Log book
- Daily project pictures
- daily reflections
- short video clips
- screen shots with audio
Students should focus on communicating what they are learning about flight and how they use this knowledge to influence their design and build their wing. This is intended to be an ongoing record of their learning. 

In math we will be working on problem solving related to graphs and interpreting graphic information.
