OPERATION SAVE THE EGG!!!!!!!

September 28, 2010

CALLING ALL DUBOIS PARENTS/GUARDIANS,

"DO NOT FORGET TO COME AND CHEER FOR YOUR CHILD!"

All fourth grade students are invited to conduct a science project to SAVE THE EGG!!!!! Each participant will drop a RAW egg from the top floor fire escape. The raw egg should first be placed in a small zip lock baggie, and then wrapped securely in the packing of your choice. The object is to wrap and cushion the raw egg so that it will not break or crack as it hits the ground. Students will learn about the scientific method in class and discuss the procedures for conducting this experiment.

On Friday, October 1, all participants should bring their egg projects (inventions) to school in the morning. The SAVE THE EGG DROP will be at 1:30 p.m. Each participant will receive a certificate, and winners of each class will be announced over the intercom. Decisions of the judges will be final.

ALL PARENTS/SPECTATORS ARE WELCOME!!!!! PLEASE COME AND CHEER ON OUR STUDENTS!!!
