  • Learning about Science in UPK

    All eight classes of Gates Chili Universal Prekindergarten (UPK) students had the opportunity to learn about science from Karie Kilner of Sensational Science. The focus of the science lessons provided students with experience in: describing similarities and differences between solids and liquids; asking questions and making predictions based on their observations; and testing predictions through exploration and experimentation. Activities for the Frozen science lesson, included: building Elsa's castle, making (and melting) a mold of Elsa's frozen hand, making instant snow, Frozen painting and trying on a blubber glove.   “Young children are natural scientists, curious about the world around them, so the Sensational Science Frozen themed lessons were very engaging,” said Erin Ugine, Coordinator of Early Childhood/P-2 Learning.    This is the third year UPK students learned about science from Karie Kilner, a former Science teacher who now teaches Sensational Science lessons in our community.

  • Letter to Parents and Guardians of High School and Middle School Students

    Combining High School After School Program Late Bus with Middle School Regularly Scheduled Afternoon Run at 3:05 pm. In an effort to be more efficient with tax payer dollars while maintaining the highest quality of safety and security for our students, we are going to do a pilot starting April 30th, 2018 through the end of the 2017/18 school year with our high school after school programs.  This applies to the high school after school programs only.   We will continue to have the regularly scheduled buses that leave the high school at approximately 2:20 pm as we do today. Our current system has 7 buses bringing home our high school students that stay after school for extra help and extracurricular activities and clubs at the same time as our 29 buses are doing the middle school afternoon run.  This often ends up with buses following each other in the same neighborhoods and down the same streets. Click on the Headline to Read More...
