New this year! Astronomy! Wild Animals! Solar Energy! Wind Turbines! And a whole lot more!
Calling all aspiring scientists, engineers, doctors, and technology whizzes!
The Application period is open on the Apprenticeships for Science & Engineering website: www.saturdayacademy.org/ASE. Students in grades 9-11 who are interested in careers in science, medicine, engineering or technology should come to the Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering (ASE) summer internship information session in the STEM building on Wednesday, January 28th at 7 pm. ASE matches scientists, engineers and technology innovators with smart students like you for eight-week internships during the summer. ASE is a great way to improve a college application, and students can earn high school credit and a $1,000 stipend! Contact Mary Beth in the School-to-Careers office in STEM building. 541-790-5262.
Parents assist in Rachel Carson Academy Van Drive
“We chose Churchill over our neighborhood school due to the Rachel Carson Program,” CHS parent Katie Hynes-Petty said. “It uniquely invites students to participate in a school program that goes well beyond a teach/test model giving students skills for a lifetime. That’s why my EEF donation goes toward this incredible program with hopes that they’ll find the funding for a van replacement.”
Please donate today by going to the Churchill website and clicking the Rachel Carson link and then scroll down and click on the big red button and follow the directions on the Eugene Education Fund website. You can also go directly to the link by pasting this URL into your browser: http://www.chs.lane.edu/2014/11/churchills-rachel-carson-academy-seeks-donations/. Make sure you earmark your donation by typing Rachel Carson Van in the “Where Do You Want Your Support to Go?” box on the form. For more information about this project contact Mary Beth Hepp-Elam, School-to-Careers Coordinator, 790-5262 or CHS Principal, BJ Blake, 541-790-5100.
Oldie Moldy, the activity van that transported Churchill’s Rachel Carson Academy students to restoration sites and the far flung corners of Oregon for most of the academy’s 17-year history has retired. Unfortunately, changes in the District’s transportation policies may put up a roadblock to students’ learning. This year, teachers in the Rachel Carson Environmental Science Academy have limited access to the District’s activity vans and these vans are a crucial transportation component for the Academy for 17 years. The good news is that if program can raise $20,000, the district has generously offered to pay the rest of the considerable cost needed to purchase a new van.
Looking Ahead …
Next SAT Testing: Saturday, March 7th th . Report to the front of Churchill’s STEM Building at 7:45 a.m.
