CAMBRIDGE SCIENCE FAIR – FEBRUARY 21

Students completing their final touches on the Science Fair Projects.

This coming Tuesday, February 21st, we celebrate learning and the world of SCIENCE.  Based on specific criteria, several projects from intermediate classes will be displayed in our gym and assessed by guest judges.  The top five Science Projects will be selected to represent Cambridge at the District Science Fair in March.  Our gym will be open after school on Tuesday until 5:30 p.m. to give parents an opportunity to view students projects.  We hope to see you there!

PINK SHIRT DAY – FEBRUARY 22

Bullying continues to occur in our schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. Each year on Pink Shirt Day, we encourage staff and students to wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere.

Victims of bullying need to know they are not alone and there is help and support available. Wearing a pink shirt on this day sends a strong message to them that others care. Often, the simple act of wearing a shirt can start conversations – conversations can be a big step towards healing and helping!

When, where, and how did Pink Shirt Day begin?  The video below, The Story of Pink Shirt Day, tells the incredible story of two amazing high school students,  David Sheppard and Travis Price who organized the original event.

PARENT TECHNOLOGY SURVEY

screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-10-09-17-pm

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Staff and students in grades 3 to 7 are participating in a comprehensive survey next week to better understand the impact that technology is having on student learning at Cambridge.  The results will help staff continue to choose the right technology to support student learning in the most effective manner.  We are also very interested in feedback from you, parents/guardians, that will help our school continue to make wise technology decisions.  This is an anonymous survey regarding your technology use.  It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.  We would appreciate your input.

Thank you,
Shaun Nelson, Principal

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING 

This thought-provoking video has been shared a number of times at assemblies in past years.  We invite you to watch it again with your child and discuss what it means to them.

We can all work to make this world a better place – even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s life.
