Science Explorers

The next club of the school year begins soon!! 

Science Explorers Club will meet on Mondays at Unionville Elementary after school from 3:45-4:45pm and is available to students in grades 1-5.

The next club topic, which begins on May 14th, is KABOOM CHEMISTRY!

We’ve picked some of our favorite activities and even created some new ones for this 3-session club.  Get your goggles ready to experiment with chemistry that fizzes, bangs and pops as you blast off film canister rockets, make an explosion in a bag, erupt a mini geyser, mix up fizzy bath poppers, and create a bubbling density concoction!  

Our final club topic coming up this year is Ready, Set, Summer!! 

Please visit www.scienceexplorers.com  and click on After-School Clubs for more information on club dates, cost or to register your child.  Class size is limited to 23 students per club...so, please register early to guarantee your child a spot. Please email programs@scienceexplorers.com or call our office at 610.816.5047 with any questions.

School Store Fundraiser
 

The next round of School Store teacher gift cards and prizes have arrived! Prizes were handed out on Friday, and teacher gift cards will be distributed early this week. If you would like your gift card sent home instead of giving directly to the child's homeroom teacher, please notify Megan Cromer at megcromer@hotmail.com.

If you have not signed up to participate in our School Store fundraiser, please do as soon as possible.  The program runs all year long, and holiday shopping is the easiest way for us to raise money for the PTO at no expense to you!!! So far we have brought in over $1000 cash for the PTO, and over $11,000 in gift cards for the teachers to use for classroom supplies and resources. 

Gift cards are delivered to the school monthly. A change this year, is that gift cards will be given directly to the child's assigned homeroom teacher, unless otherwise requested.
