Dear Families,

Teton Science School will be visiting Lander Middle School Wednesday April 17th and Thursday April 18th.  If you have not yet filled out a medical release form and returned it back to LMS, please do so no later than Wednesday April 17th.  TSS requires all participants to have a completed medical release form for their own records.  Because of this requirement, any student that does not have the medical form completed may not participate in any TSS activities.  Please complete the form and return it as soon as possible.

On Thursday April 18th, all sixth grade students will be travelling to Sinks Canyon State Park for a full day field study.  Please make sure your child has a packed, cold lunch, two water bottles, and two snacks.  Also, please make sure that your child dresses appropriately for the weather.  As of now, the temperature is supposed to be in the low to mid 40’s.  There is plenty of snow up in the Sinks, so make sure your child has their snow gear.  We plan to be outside all day!

Teton Science School will be working with students on a handful of activities relating to:

  • Fire Ecology
  • Geology
  • Poetry Writing
  • Culture and History of the park
  • GPS Geocaching and Mapping
  • Topography Mapping
  • Macro-invertebrates
  • Riparian Zones

Thanks!

The Sixth Grade Team
