Polaris is Growing
The Board of Trustees has voted to add a 7th classroom next year. The age range of the 7th classroom will depend on the ages of re-enrolling students, new applicants, and other factors.
Prospective families will receive their numbers for the lottery next week. The lottery for 2014-2015 will be held on March 7th.

Mrs. Duggan conducted a science lesson in Ms. Haynes class where oil, water and a little food coloring were used to discuss molecules, density and emulsion. These “lava lamps” demonstrated that oil floats on top of the water because it is less dense or lighter than water. The food coloring has the same density as the water so it sinks through the oil and mixes with the water. Students then dropped a piece of Alka-Seltzer into their containers. The Alka-Seltzer reacted with water to release carbon dioxide, which is less dense than both oil and water. Bubbles traveled through both layers of water and oil until they reached the surface then fell back down. Thank you Mrs. Duggan!
