Every year the Science Center works with Scouts in Burlington. Ethan Rousseau is a Burlington Scout who contacted the Science Center for potential Eagle Scout projects connecting with the schools and community. Ethan decided on building a school garden at Pine Glen Elementary School, including raised beds and a fence. Please pass the word along to help support him! Thank you!

Back to School in 2017

We are up and running in 207!  Our 4th graders are mastering routines and showing what amazing role models they are already.  We have done many group activities to work on our communication and compromising skills.  Check out all of the fun we have had in September!
Awesome 207ers!

Penny Challenge...What happens when vinegar, salt and pennies are mixed together.

Making observations

I wonder what happened.

We learned some interesting things about each other.  Did you know Frankie is a champion chess player?

Ava loves making slime.

We did a Marshmallow Challenge.

First we drew a design.

Then we started to build.

We used teamwork to build a structure.

We had a lot of different ideas for ways to hold up a Marshmallow.

Some of us made very tall structures.

Some realized that their structure needed support on the bottom.

Will it hold?


We are proud of our Writer's Notebooks.

We have some special skills.

Wow!!!  Ava is very flexible!

Josh has some dabbing skills.

Ashlee's Notebooks are very colorful!

We are amazing!

Judy read us a fun story about a Lake Monster named Hudson.
Ava and Hannah work together to flip a marshmallow.
Joe and Shea had a different design for their flipper.
We built Marshmallow Flippers.
Pine Glen had deer walking around.  Wildlife is everywhere!

What is a Social Scientist? We practice our presentation skills making and presenting posters.
 Aarushi and Matty decided that their first design was not as successful.

 Colin and Chris thought their design looked like a spaceship.
 Ashlee and Sophie were very happy with their design.

Back to School Night for Grown-Ups 2017

Back to School Night for Grown-Ups is scheduled for this Wednesday, September 13th from 6:00 to 7:30.  The night will begin in the cafeteria at 6:00 with opening remarks from the principal.  We will leave the back doors of the cafeteria open to parents in order that they can enter and exit the building through the cafe.  At 6:15 parents are free to proceed to classrooms.  We will continue to have two informational sessions.  The first session will be held from 6:15-6:45.  The second session will run from 6:55-7:25.   Parents are welcome to attend either session.

This is a great evening when teachers and parents can discuss expectations, curriculum, classroom
procedures and establish partnerships between home and school.  We regret that we are unable to
provide child care.  We appreciate parents making arrangements for the care of their children in order to attend this important evening.

What an absolutely awesome way to end the year!  The 4th graders of 207 had an amazing time at LegoLand!  We went on rides, watched a 4D movie, and used our engineering skills to create a Merry-Go-Round in our workshop.  The fourth grade teachers had a great time and were so proud of all of the students for dong a great job.
