Congratulations to eighth graders Chris Pfaltzgraff and Andrew Schattel, along with their science teacher, Mrs. Bloch! Chris and Andrew created a science project entitled "The Effect of Light on Sleep," which their teacher entered into the inaugural Bright Schools Competition. This competition is a collaborative effort of the National Sleep Foundation and the National Science Teachers Association that encourages students in grades 6-8 to explore the correlation between light and sleep and how it influences student health and performance. As a result of the competition, Chris and Andrew, along with Mrs. Bloch, have been named national finalists in the Bright Schools Competition! Nice work, Chris and Andrew!
Congratulations to seventh graders Paean Luby and Ross Elkon, who placed in the Regional Science Fair Tuesday, March 15th!
