PPSSE Hosts Mentor Meeting - Oct. 13, 4-6pm

A message from PPSSE Fair Director Nancy Lapotin:

It is time to gear up for PPSSE, which will be at Benson High School on March 10, 2011.

We will be holding a meeting for all mentors and prospective adult sponsors on October 13, 2010 from 4-6 at Rice. We are working on getting a cadre of mentors to work with students to help lighten the load for PPS Science teachers and to make PPSSE equitably accessible to all PPS students. You are all cordially invited and we would love your help with this.

If you know any parents or community members who would like to help mentor a student or two with a science project and the paperwork required for the fair, please pass this along to them.

This is an excellent opportunity for TAG extension for your students.

We welcome any PPS HS student who is interested in doing a Science Research Project to be involved.

Please feel free to pass my email address on to anyone you think might be interested in this. We plan on having an all district meeting for students interested in doing projects soon after the mentor meeting.

There is a flyer attached!!!!!!! Please help me spread the word.
