Item Description

Parent Volunteer Marcy Deeds is helping the teachers create a science lab in Rm 6 for all the classes to use and benefit from. Studies show children who experience hands-on learning are far more likely to retain the information they are learning. Our lab is in need of tables, stools, microscopes, tanks for live animals and more. No matter the size, your contribution will go a long way toward making sure your teachers have the supplies, materials and space to create a nurturing environments for your child to experience science at Yountville Elementary.  K-6 science is key to continuing to create a wealth of scientifically literate engaged learners. Help us prepare all our students for middle school with the tools and the confidence they need to excel in school.

Below is an interesting eye-opening article on what's happening to science in elementary schools in California.
