Sharks Game
-------------
Looks like a great day out... There were 57 tickets sold!  I am turning in the money this 
week 
and will advise once the tickets are in.  

Protractors Needed
--------------------
It would be great if each student had a protractor.  Module 4 in math is our geometry 
unit 
and we will need protractors to measure angles.  Many of you have already brought 
them in 
and we used them today... yea!  We will be using them for the next month or so.  You 
should 
be able to purchase them for about $1 at Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Office Depot, 
etc...

Science Fair is Coming
-----------------------
Calling all scientists!!!!! The Annual Mohr Science Fair will be March 1st. All students 
are 
welcome to participate. You can work independently or with a partner or two. PTA will 
be 
selling the science boards on February 4th in the Library after school. The cost for each 
board is $3.25. You can bring cash or write out a check to Mohr PTA. 

Students can drop of their science project after school on Monday, February the 29th. 
Just 
go to the MPR and there will be volunteers to take your project. Otherwise, bring in 
your 
project before school tot he MPR. If you come to school later, then bring your board at 
that 
time.  Once the Science Fair is set up then classroom will be able to tour it.

In the evening of March 1st, the Science Fair will be open for families to come and take 
a look 
at the scientists at Mohr. The doors will be open from 5 - 7 pm. 

We look forward to a successful and creative Science Fair this year. If you have further 
questions please feel free to contact Mrs Stanford (lstanford@pleasantonusd.net) or 
Susmita 
Patnaik (susmita_patnaik@yahoo.com).

Exploratorium
--------------
We are very excited to be going to the Exploratorium on February 23rd.  If you would 
like to attend, you will need to be cleared as a volunteer only.  This provides a great 
opportunity for parents to attend a field trip and not have to have drivers clearance.  
We will be taking BART to SF and then walking from the BART station to the 
Exploratorium.  We would love for cleared volunteers to attend to help with the logistics 
of students on BART and in the museum.  Parents will, however, be responsible for 
their own Exploratorium and BART ticket.  I will collect the money from the 
Exploratorium as the tickets will be at a reduced rate and parents can purchase their 
own BART ticket. We will also need parents to shuttle students to/from the BART 
station.  More details will be coming out very soon, but please save the date if you are 
interested in attending.
