MARCH NEWS

Students in grades 3-5 will be completing state testing this year! Last year, our state was not able to complete testing due to computer issues and have assured us that this year we will test. This will be a new assessment for us, so it will be considered a baseline score. We still know our students will do GREAT!

Parents, please watch for the testing dates of your student and send them to school ready to DO THEIR BEST ON THE TEST! This means a good rest the night before and a good breakfast at home or at school. Students will take tests in Reading, Writing, and Math and our 4th grade will also complete the Science test.

STEM FAIR
science projectAs our STEM Fair approaches on March 5, we wanted to provide you with a list of web sites that you and your child can browse for ideas or research content.  The STEM Fair is a school-wide event and all students will be participating.  Projects need to be completed at home and brought to school on Thursday, March 5.  We encourage you to start early!  Students may choose from the following categories:
  • Science Experiment*, model** or invention
  • Research Project on a scientific topic or scientist
  • Technology Project about Science, Technology, Engineering or Math
  • Engineering Project
 
* Flammable or otherwise dangerous substances may not be used.
* No animals may be brought to school (alive or dead).
**Models made from kits may not be used.

Participation is required for all McLean students and will count as part of their science grade for the quarter. Siblings may not do joint projects. Projects should be a product of the students’ own effort and ideas. In helping your child to choose a topic, begin with his/her natural curiosity.  What are they interested in? Once a student has selected a topic then you are ready to gather information and set up your experiment, model, invention, research or technology project, or engineering project.
