Be in the Know  
*Fundraising opportunity for 8th grade trip:  The FN needs 4-5 middle school students to act as servers, and auction helpers for their spaghetti dinner fundraiser.  Students who help, will “collect tips”, which will be applied to the cost of their 8th grade trip.  If your student is available, and wants to help, have them speak with us.  The spaghetti dinner is Tuesday, Feb 13th and they would need to be here 5:15~7:30pm (the night before Yosemite). 
 
*Project Presentations begin next week.  This project includes completing an experiment, which answers a driving question, which helps teach their topic.
