Science Club is Starting

The Orchard Middle School Science Club will have our first meeting in the cafeteria after school on Tuesday, Sept. 24 until 5pm for 6th graders and Wednesday, Sept. 25 until 5pm for 5th graders.

   Science Club will explore areas of science not explored in school. While many participants in Science Club are interested in being on the Science Olympiad team, children many join Science Club if they are NOT interested in Science Olympiad.

   Science Olympiad is a team competition at Case Western Reserve University. To be considered for a spot on our Orchard Science Olympiad team, children need to have 100% attendance and homework completion in Science Club. We will also look for interest, enthusiasm, passion shown in Club and on homework.

    To attend Science Club, children must have a permission slip and $15 check (made payable to Solon Bd. Of Ed.) turned in to Mrs. Benedict’s mailbox in the office by Friday, Sept. 20 at 4pm. Permission slips are available for children to pick up in the office in the bins on the wall by Mr. Martin’s desk. Be sure to complete the slip for the correct grade. Again, permission slip must be turned in by Friday in order to stay the following week.
