4th grade Family Science Night
Fourth grade students and their parents were treated to a fascinating Family Science Night at Harman Elementary recently.
Smith and Harman fourth graders were invited and the event was co-chaired by Monica Brouwer and Kim Walther who are both fourth grade teachers in the district. The students rotated among ten different stations that included Kooky Pencils, Gobs of Fun, and the Nifty Balloon Trick which were evening favorites.
The high school Energy Club also brought their Energy Bike and the kids got the opportunity to ride it and experience the effects of the invention. High school students got involved and kept the stations running smoothly.
The night was a wonderful success!
Sen. Husted seeking career college applicants
Senator Jon Husted (R- Kettering) is seeking local high school seniors who are interested in pursuing higher education at one of Ohio’s 35 participating career colleges.
The 2008-2009 Legislative Scholarship program sponsored by the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools, offers over 180 scholarships opportunities worth more than $500,000 to graduating Ohio high school seniors working to obtain a job in an Ohio business or industry. The available scholarships would cover one-half tuition, or specific amounts that would be used toward the completion of a certificate, diploma or associate degree. Any student wishing to apply must complete the Legislative Nomination form and obtain the signature of a member of the Ohio House of Representatives or Ohio Senate. Senator Husted encourages all interested high school seniors to apply.
“I fully support the Legislative Scholarship Program because it provides high school seniors with an opportunity to pursue a quality, affordable higher education. As we work to compete with other states and countries, it is vital that we seek out new ways to equip our young people with the tools they need to succeed - this program works to accomplish that goal”.
