C.O.S.I. & 2/24/14 Newsletter


Our students had the opportunity to learn about our ecosystem through the generous funding and volunteer support of our Parent - School Organization. The Center of Science and Industry, located along the Scioto River in Columbus, Ohio paid a visit to our school through its educational outreach program called COSI On Wheels. 

This exciting day of learning was organized by one of our terrific parent volunteers. She prepared a group of helpers who included parents from our school community as well as students from our high school, to assist our K - 3 students. 

The day began in our school gymnasium with a high-energy, interactive assembly that left the children eager to return later that day for their scheduled session.  Dozens of cafeteria tables were transformed to learning stations filled with hands-on learning materials and volunteers who were on hand to answer questions during the small-group sessions. The children moved about freely to the various stations, learning about animal life cycles, adaptations, and how parts of an ecosystem are related. 

COSI ~ what a great learning experience for the children!
