Kindergarten student Stephanie Hassell holds a real meteorite in an exhibit brought to Woodmoor Elementary School recently by the Pacific Science Center's "Space Odyssey" van. Students were able to feel the forces behind a gyroscope, learn about the different colors of starlight, build with geosticks, and search for stars in an inflatable planetarium.
The topic for the next Community Forum will be "Do We Know How Well Our Students Are Learning?" The event, set for April 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ricketts auditorium, will feature Patti Weber, coordinator of assessment and gifted; Joyce Lyons, health education teacher at IHS; Louise Hatala, Washington alliance field team coach and trainer; and other Northshore teachers. Participants will join with teachers to discuss the wide variety of strategies being considered determining student progress. For information, call 489-6440.
