Letter from the Science for Youth Program:
   We are excited to announce that the Science For Youth program is returning to Mohr this 
year. This is a program run by high school students to teach science to elementary school 
students through fun, interactive presentations.
   We will be meeting in Mrs. Huggins room, 12C, every Tuesday after school from 3:30 to 
4:30 from February 10th until May 26th except for March 31st (which is spring break). 
Attendance is mandatory. This program was very popular last year. However, this year we 
only have space for 30 students. This means that the children who are admitted must be 
committed and attend EVERY meeting. Please keep this in mind before signing your child 
   The presentations will all lead up to the Elementary Science Olympiad which is on May 
30. Attendance to this is also mandatory to be in the program. Please keep this in mind as 
well. Here is the application to register your children for the program:
   Only the first 50 responses will be considered. There will be a wait list for those not 
admitted. Signups closeFriday, February 6th, 2015 at midnight. . You will be notified by 
February 8th at the latest as to whether they are in the program or not.
   It is NECESSARY that we have parents supervise the kids from 2:50 to 3:30 until the high 
schoolers arrive. This is minimal, however, required for us to have this program. This is the 
only participation we need from parents.  This form will close on Friday, February 6th at 
midnight as well.
   If you have any questions regarding the program, feel free to email at  
   Parent volunteers please sign up here:
