If joining after September, simply attend class and your name will be added to the roster.

Attendance is taken at each meeting.

Science Olympiads (Grades 6-8)

Science Olympiads is a team activity for students in grades 6–8 to learn skills covering a variety of topics, such as Disease Detectives and Fossils. Students may participate in two or more defined events.

At the beginning of the school year, Middle School students interested in trying out for the team will receive an Informational Letter and signup sheet that will need to be returned to Mrs. Lexi Pond, Middle School Science Teacher.

All students interested in trying out will be expected to:

  1. Attend three days of event demonstrations held after school (students with conflicts can make arrangements with the Science Olympiad coordinators to acquire necessary prep materials). Dates will be announced in early September.
  2. Study a prep packet which will be handed out at the event demonstrations.
  3. Participate in individual and group testing.

Wednesday afternoons after school are tentatively scheduled as the meeting day (3:30-5pm.). Some morning before-school practices will also be scheduled to accommodate students’ schedules. There will be a couple of Saturdays in the fall that students will need to be present.

Parents of team members will be expected to actively participate as coaches and assistants.

There are two event competitions which include Regionals, held in March, and State, held in April.
