An opportunity has arisen for grade 7-12 students if they wish to showcase their STEM project virtually at a national level.  Youth Science Canada has announced a virtual fair for May 2020. According to the Youth Science Canada Facebook Page, submissions will open on Monday, May 4, 2020. They understand that many regional fairs were cancelled so this opportunity is open to any interested student from grades 7-12 (whether they were attending district/regional fairs or not). 

 

There will be more information in the coming weeks on when and how to register if you are interested.  Keep an eye on the STEM North site or Youth Science Canada for information.

Please remember that the following are suggestions.  Only do what works for your family.   Nothing is mandatory.   The ShowMe video presents new material that we would have covered had we been in class.   Reflex presents basic math facts in a game and tutorial format until your child masters them.   Your child is in two Mathletics classes.  Under the avatar there is a drop-down menu to switch between the two classes.  Fluency is a review class and FI is the grade level outcomes.     

I suggest you watch the video, do Reflex three times a week, and pick one or two other options.
