I saw some great little scientists today during Slugfest 2008. I loved the use of creativity in setting up and carrying out an experiment to learn more about the feeding preferences of slugs. Here, TRISTIN and DAYMIN check out the specimens before class. Make sure you check out Cameron's podcast on the right.

On Friday, 12 September we will have our 2nd annual middle school boys campout inside the GCS track. Interested students will take part in a campfire dinner, participate in leadership activities with the help of SUNY Cortland students, and get to know their new teachers outside of the classroom. Students may bring in a tent, team up with friends that have a tent, or sleep under the sky. In the event of rain, all activities will be moved into the middle school gym. In that case no tent will be needed, just a sleeping bag or blankets. Below is the schedule for the evening:
3:30pm – 4:25pm: Return to school with tent, sleeping bag, sneakers, toothbrush, flashlight, a watch, warm clothes and any other desired items – set up sleeping area.
Students staying right after school MUST stay in the cafeteria until they are escorted outside
4:30pm – 6:00pm: Camp-wide welcome and group activities
6:00pm – 7:00pm: Campfire cookout (all food provided by MS student council)
7:00pm – 8:00pm: Campfire w/smores
8:00pm – 10:00pm: Call to quarters/Outdoor movie
8am: Breakfast (provided by MS student council)
9am: Students go home
Upon arrival, students will receive a schedule and directions. Prescription meds should be dropped off at this point also. It is very important that they read the provided sheet. This event will be fully chaperoned by the male teachers and assistance will be available during tent pitching and dinner. Dinner and breakfast will be provided. Options include hotdogs (meat and/or vegetarian), grilled perch, and a variety of “tin foil creations” (potatoes, veggies, etc). There will also be a PB & J backup plan. Breakfast will involve breakfast burritos, bagels/cream cheese, and juices. At least two chaperones will be on call at every point throughout the night. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. DeVoe at 898.5803 x302. or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note - we will not tolerate any behavior outside the set schedule and rules. Please include contact information on the enclosed form so we may contact you at any point throughout the night if any intolerable behavior or emergencies arise.
