Our Elementary Science Steering Committee (ESSC), in cooperation with the district's Office of School Improvement (formerly the CA&PD) and participants in our PI-CRUST Project, plans to offer a variety of workshops and in-service sessions during the 2004-2005 school year.   These workshops are designed to assist teachers in implementing our elementary science curriculum.   Details of these programs will be posted here as they are developed.

Our ESSC proposed holding a set of grade-specific in-service sessions dealing with representing ideas in science -- specifically using "science journals" -- for elementary science PD during the 2004-2005 school year.  This proposal was not accepted by the LSD School Improvement Office, and staff were instead instructed to lead PD sessions demonstrating how to use the science kits associated with our elementary science units.  Two sets of such sessions have been planned (for 8/26/04 and 11/2/04):

In addition, the following elementary science-related PD sessions have been offered during the 2004-2005 school year:
