8th Grade Science Field Trip Opportunity - Sign up by September 30
Nineteenth Century English scientist, Michael Faraday, was a pioneer who worked to establish much of what we know today about the physics and chemistry of electricity. Pittsburgh honors him yearly by hosting a lecture – demonstration program for students in hopes of sharing his love and enthusiasm for doing science with others. This year the program is entitled: Weird Science on Energy and Fuel, presented by Dr. Lee Marek of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Mrs. Shaffer will be overseeing a fieldtrip to Soldiers and Sailors Hall on November 15 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. for any 8th grade student interested in attending this science based program. Students will be responsible for any missed work on that day but are encouraged to attend if they have any interest or passion in the field of science. Please see Mrs. Shaffer in room 309 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a permission slip or seek any further information. All permission slips must be turned in by September 30. Slots will be filled on a first come first served basis
8th Grade Trip Information & Fundraiser
The Quaker Valley Middle School will once again be taking the 8th grade class to Gettysburg, Washington D. C. and Williamsburg. The dates for this year’s trip are May 17, 18, 19, and 20, 2017. The cost of the trip will be around $440.00 (give or take $10). Permission slips and a payment schedule were passed out to the students during homeroom on September 9. The payment schedule will be based on three installments. Checks should be made out to the Quaker Valley Middle School. The payments schedule is:
$150.00 due the week of October 11-14, 2016
$150.00 due the week of January 17-20, 2017
$140.00 due the week of March 6-10, 2017
To help offset some of the trip cost, the 8th grade class will sell Believe products to raise money for the trip. This sale begins on September 12 and runs through September 26. The student’s individual profit will come directly off the cost of their trip. Our goal is to take every eighth grader who wants to go. If you are interested in making a donation for students that may need financial assistance or if you have any questions or needs, please contact Mr. Slencak or Mr. Kelly in the middle school.
