PTA Monday Memo May 24, 2021


Thank you to all of the residents who participated in the school district budget vote and trustee election.  Voters approved the proposed budget for the Merrick School District with 577 “yes” votes.  Thank you to all who voted and for your ongoing commitment to our schools!

STEAM Day 2021 is here!  Chatterton School will be celebrating STEAM Day on Friday, May 28th.  Students will be engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics activities throughout the day!

Each class will participate in a presentation, “Science for Everyone”.  During this 45-minute interactive program, SFE presents some of the most incredible experiments.

Like what?   How about making a kosher dill pickle glow in the dark?… or setting a bowl of ice cubes on fire?… or sticking a McDonald’s straw straight through a hard, raw potato?… or making a bar of Ivory Soap expand to the size of a volleyball?… or creating an indoor tornado?…. or cutting a hole in a piece of typing paper big enough for NBA star Lebron James to jump through?… or teaching older students to multiply faster than a calculator?… to name just a few.

Students will also participate in both indoor and outdoor activities throughout the day!  It is sure to be a fun-filled day of learning for everyone!  Ask your child about the day!

Have a great week!

Dana Bermas
