Science Olympiad Events

Here is the list of the events for the High School (Division C) and Middle School (Division B) Science Olympiad.  The competition dates are not yet set but will probably be some time in February.  I am working on determining which competencies go with which events.

Division B (6-9 grades)

Division C (9-12 grades)

Here is a link to a Google Sheet with descriptions of the events, as well as the competencies I anticipate they will meet —  Science Olympiad: Events and Competencies


Friday, Nov. 4th “Of Mice and Men” at SLT

If you would like to go see
 Of Mice and Men at SLT as a group on Friday, Nov. 4th, let Mrs. Frye know.  We could go to dinner first. I will order a block of tickets if enough people would like to go.  Tickets are $17, but could be $15 if we have a group of ten or more.

Of Mice and Men is a moving study of the character of two roving farmhands, George Milton and his friend Lennie Small, gigantic in stature, well-meaning, but with limited mental capacity.  They share a dream of settling down on their own ranch, a dream that seems all the more tempting for its impossibility.  The well-known drama is a powerful slice of depression life that brings us up close and personal to a patchwork of emotions, hopes and fears that compel Steinbeck’s characters onwards, however doomed their journey.
