Science Club Follow-Up
We are thrilled at the turn-out for students who wanted to attend our first science club adventure to Tuckaleechee Caverns!  We were able to add a 2nd day, but still unable to get everyone in, so be watching for information about our October trip.  If you sent in a permission form with your child on Monday, Sept 9, one of the following should have occurred. 
1 – You received an email verifying your child’s participation in the trip on Monday, Sept 16.
OR
2 – You received an email requesting a yes or no for your child to attend the 2nd trip on Tuesday, Sept 17.
OR
3- Your child returned the form (and money if applicable) to you (because both trips were filled).

Science Club 2019-2020 NEW FORMAT
The MRIS Science Club is open to all students in all grades.  This year, the science club will take mini-field trips instead of monthly meetings on-campus. Interested students will get a permission form from science teachers for each trip and return it (with payment) to the brick benches in front of the main office the following day between 7:15-7:35 am (first come, first serve, limited numbers).  Science teachers will announce trips, and information will be included in parent announcements and daily school announcements.  Trips will be from 2:45-5:00 unless noted on permission forms. Cost for each field trip will be $5.00, unless otherwise noted on permission form.  Below are tentative dates for the year (subject to change based on site availability).  We are excited to take students to science destinations! Be watching for information for our September trip soon!
