Dear Mohr Families,
Welcome back to school! For those of you I have not met, my name is Cece McCarthy and I am your child’s 1st-5th grade science teacher. This year will be an exciting time in the science lab. Pleasanton Unified School District is excited to announce the adoption of TWIG/Amplify as the District's new science curriculum. TWIG is aligned with Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) which your children have been learning about in science. TWIG provides many innovative hands-on labs for your students. The goal of the new standards is to make your children the “thinkers” and “problem solvers” of our world.
I would like to thank our PTA who generously contributes to our science lab. Lab materials are expensive and with the new Next Generation of Science Standards and TWIG curriculum which now including engineering practices, the science lab requires additional resources.
I hope that each family can make a small donation to our science lab. Please only donate what you can!
There is no expectation of a donation from every student or every family. Any donation received is treated as the true “gift” it is, and will be used to purchase special enrichment items that we otherwise would do without.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am so grateful for the continued support and enthusiasm you have shown me and the science lab. Thank you!
