Please join us Thursday, 10/25 to cast our final vote to approve our 2012-2013 Budget.
We will meet in the Multipurpose Room at 6:30p to review the final line item of our Budget to determine how you (Parents and Teachers) would like to earmark the funds we raise. Field Trips?
Tech? Both? Your voice/vote will make a difference.
Refreshments, light snacks and child care will be provided.
Will visit us, Oct 19 (6:30p-9:00p) to host another exciting Stargazing Party!
Weather permitting (and the forecast looks great) our wonderful friends and volunteer astronomers from LAAS will set-up to share their passion for science during an evening of awe inspiring gazing at the stars.
We’ll attempt to catch Mars to the west as it sets around 7:30p. The moon is a waxing crescent as it approaches the Quarter Moon and Sagittarius (with its galactic center) should be to the high southwest. We may also be treated to a possible glimpse of our neighboring galaxy Andromeda (M31) overhead in Pegasus.
There’s a good chance of viewing Neptune in Aquarius to the high south and Jupiter’s rising towards the east towards the end of our program.
The annual Orionids meteor shower is scheduled to peak during the early morning hours of Sunday, October 21; however, you just might glimpse one after our Stargazing Party has ended!
This Thursday, Oct 18 (6:00-7:30p) Thomas Starr King Middle School Auditorium
