Step right up to be part of shaping HOP’s future. We will have four open HOP Board positions for the 2017-2018 school year, including HOP Co-Chair, Fundraising Co-Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. We are in search of a Nominating Committee to help identify possible candidates for these positions. The committee will meet once or twice in March and will aim to identify individuals who would work well in these roles.

This year, the Science Fair is changing focus. Rather than being an evening to showcase experiments conducted at home, this will be a daytime event – a STEAM Carnival where all of Haynes students will join in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math focused exploration.
The STEAM Carnival will be held during the school day on March 16th. There will be: virtual and augmented reality stations where students will explore other times and places; obstacle courses to challenge the laws of physics; simple machines used to create Rube Goldberg devices; Stop action animation; Coding; Robotics, and more. A STEAM Carnival is a hands-on, immersive experience for students.
All students will rotate through many different experiences-some will also demonstrate and guide other students. We would love to have volunteers for the actual event itself, but if you do not have time to come, please consider donating some of the consumables ( such as origami paper, straws, paper towel tubes, etc. ) or loaning items ( like drones, marble runs, and erector sets.) The students will be learning all about it in Friday meeting soon, and I know they will be as excited as we are!
