The District's teacher training this year will focus on the new Science standards. As such, we have been making efforts at Park to incorporate the necessary rigor into our Science instruction by developing Science Fairs not only in the 7th-8th grades, but incorporating TK-6th as well. The goal is to increase collaboration, student engagement, and connecting learning to real life experiences.
We are lucky to have Mr. Hyke, retired Science Teacher, return to us for a second year. He is providing hands on Science Experiments for our TK-3rd grade students in our newly enhanced Science Lab.
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards that were developed by states to improve science education for all students. For more information, please click on the link: https://www.nextgenscience.org/
