On Monday September 24th The Franklin Institute came to PACS and presented their traveling science show titled”The Scientific Method.” Two shows were presented to the 3rd through 8th grade students.
The presentation focused on a scientist utilizing the scientific method to tackle tough questions. Students used the method to explore some surprising properties of heat and temperature. They also practiced using their senses to observe and collect data. Students concluded that science is one way to test their assumptions about the world around them.
PACS students and faculty would like to extend our “thanks”to the Home & School Association for sponsoring this event.
We’re happy to announce that for the second straight year we have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). Congratulations to our students, staff and parents in achieving AYP status for 2012. WELL DONE!
