Hello Grade 4, 5 & 6 Families,
Tomorrow we will be hosting our Science Fair. Students will be setting up their projects from 8:45-9:00. Judging will take place from 9:00-11:30. Parents may visit the displays from 1:00-2:00. The presentation of certificates will take place from 2:00-2:15. Looking forward to seeing all of the hard work that these students have put in! See you at the fair!
Parent teacher conferences are taking place on Thursday evening and Friday at CQES.
We are also hosting a Scholastic Book Fair at the same time. All proceeds go to buying books for the library.
Monday, March 5th is a PD day. No classes for students.
Dean Dollar’s Bus (#48) will be 30 minutes late taking students home this afternoon. Jane Aten, Bus #73 will be arriving at the school at 3:15 to do Dean’s afternoon run.
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Central Queens is having a Battery Blitz from now until March 8th, 2018 and we’d love your help in collecting used batteries. The winning school will get a pizza party sponsored by the Earth Rangers – who came to our school on February 15 and let our students get up close and personal with some interesting animals. All used batteries under 5kg are welcome (except wet cell batteries). If you have any questions you can visit http://www.earthrangers.org/batteryblitz or contact the school.
It has been brought to our attention that the positive battery terminals should have masking or electrical tape over them – required by the FDA. If you can tape them prior to sending them in, it would help out considerably!
Thank you to all who have sent in batteries already! It is greatly appreciated.
Please note, the actual contest closes on March 16th but the batteries have to be weighed, shipped and arrive at the contest headquarters by that date.
Thank you for your support with helping to keep batteries out of our landfills.
