GENERAL PTA MEETING
November 20th 10:15 am at CES Science Lab
Have you heard about the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? Are you interested in learning about how your children are experiencing science at Coleytown? Please join us and meet Pete Alfano, the CES Science Coach. Pete will facilitate a hands on and informative meeting where parents experience science as their children do each day!
The meeting will cover 1) how our science curriculum uses modeling to explain phenomena, 2) how students develop questions and investigations to explore this phenomena, and 3) how science and engineering practices are embedded into our units of study. We hope to see you in the Science lab for this exciting meeting!
