Information on all three programs will be presented.
Sixth Graders will be going to see ENCORE!! at Chrysler Hall on December 10, 2018.
Each of the five stories in the ENCORE!! collection has a flavor that highlights the versatility of five great authors: Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, W.W. Jacobs, Guy de Maupassant, and Mark Twain. Their timeless glimpses into the human experience are brought to life on the stage.

Paula Labbe, a science teacher at Deep Creek Middle School, was awarded a $2800 grant to support optics and photonics education from SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. SPIE partners with researchers, educators, and industry to advance light-based research and technologies for the betterment of the human condition. In 2017, SPIE provided $4 million in support of education and outreach programs. Mrs. Labbe will use the grant to purchase lab materials that will enhance student’s study of optics and photonics. The lab materials will be used in hands-on activities so students can explore and discover the properties of optics and photonics. Not only will students learn more and optics and photonics, active and engaged learning in the science classroom has a positive effect on students’ attitudes about science and their scientific reasoning skills. These grant materials will have a direct and long lasting impact on student learning at Deep Creek Middle School.
