The STEM Alliance Tinkering Nights are back! This year, our Jr STEAM Exploration program focuses on the 5 senses and simple machines. Kids will get to learn and explore their senses at different hands-on, interactive exploration area and activities, as well as explore different simple machines and how they work. They can also make their own scratch-and-sniff name plate, banjo and maracas, design and race a rubber band powered roadster and make a rubber band powered catapult. This year’s K-2 Tinkering Night at Murray will be held THIS THURSDAY from 6:00 to 7:00PM.
REGISTER: Registration is live so sign up now for the STEM Alliance Tinkering Night (grades K to 2 ONLY). This event is FREE and open to students from Murray only. Parents must attend and participate with their child.
VOLUNTEER: In order to have a successful event, we will need volunteers. Parents and older kids (5th graders, HMX and HS) are welcome to sign up to help set up and/or assist at a table. We can provide volunteer acknowledgement letters for middle school and HS students. There were a lot of 5th grade volunteers at the Chatsworth and Central events, and we received lots of positive feedback from them and their parents. Please contact Antonella Kauffman (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can volunteer.
We need help pruning, weeding, and sprucing up the Meadow and Garden in preparation for spring projects and events. Please join us on Sunday, April 30 from 3-5pm and/or on Wednesday, May 3rd from 8:45-10:45am, to help with this spring prep. This is a great way to learn how to prepare your garden for the spring and summer. No experience necessary - expect to get a bit dirty! Sign up HERE.
The Community Outreach Committee will collect new and gently used children's clothing and shoes to benefit The Sharing Shelf. A donation bin will be located in the main office hallway all week. Additional bins will be on the 1st grade playground and in front of the kindergarten playground during morning drop off, weather permitting. Questions? Please email Jen Johnson at email@example.com.
