Jordan/Jackson Science Nights with Dr. Bob!

 
MESA has teamed up again with Dr. Bob Morris, Ph.D of Wheaton College for exciting nights of SCIENCE WITH DR. BOB on Monday, January 14th, Tuesday, January 15th and Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30pm! 3rd, 4th and 5th Graders may come any night, but please only sign up for one night!
See below to sign up. 

Dr. Bob is an award-winning teacher and researcher who has been communicating the fun and excitement of science to the young and not-so-young for more than 30 years.  Dr. Bob's enthusiastic and entertaining approach to science education has led to classroom and public appearances across the country (including here in his hometown of Mansfield), to hosting "Family Science Nights" in Maine and now also at MMAS Arts Center at Great Woods, and hosting a TV series on Mansfield Cable Access called "Science with Dr. Bob!" For more information on Dr. Bob's credentials, please see his Wheaton faculty profile at https://wheatoncollege.edu/academics/faculty-directory/robert-l-morris/ and his website ScienceWithDrBob.com.

Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Parental participation is imperative to the success of this event. Parents/guardians must remain with the student and engage in the experiments. 
*Please NO SIBLINGS!* (other than J/J students)

MESA General Meeting and Parent's Night Out


Our next General Meeting will be a combo with this months Parent Night Out on FRIDAY, JANUARY 25th at 7:30pm at the PushKart Cafe, located in the center of town next to Flynn's! 

***Please note this is a change in the original date for the meeting which was scheduled for 1/16 as it conflicts with one of our J/J science nights*** 

Join the MESA board for the General Meeting to catch up on all the upcoming events like Garden Wonders for the Kindergarteners, Spring Fling, Bookworms, and Field Day! We will need many volunteers for these events and coming to the meeting is a great way to introduce yourselves and learn how to jump in and help out. 

Stay after the meeting to socialize! The PushKart Cafe is located on Main Street in the old Cupcake Town space, next to Flynn's Irish Pub. The Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch daily, but the owners have been kind enough to let us host this meeting and social event there on a Friday night! We hope to see you there!

Box Tops News
 
ROBINSON NEWS: Please send in December Box tops this week!  We cannot wait to see which class wins the traveling trophy for the month of December and pencils for the class.  

JORDAN/JACKSON NEWS:  
Congratulations to the 3rd Grade for winning the Battle of the Box Tops during conferences!  The 3rd Grade class collected 689 Box Tops (or $68.90 ) to be the winning grade.  Together Jordan/Jackson students collected $148.10 for the Box Top program. 

Jordan/Jackson can continue to bring in Box Tops and place them in boxes by the East and West doors throughout the year!   We will be hosting another Battle of the Box Tops Challenge in April during conferences. 

Box Top Tips:  Please do not send in any expired Box Tops and cut around the pink dotted lines -- this saves our Box Top coordinators tons of time!  At the Robinson, if you have more Box Tops than fit on the worksheets (10), please place them in a baggie with your teacher's name on them.  
 
Thanks for your support of the Box Top program and keep clipping!
