For the final time this school year, science teacher Joe Landoni would like to showcase the following seventh-grade students as science “Catalysts” for Term 4, this time as voted on by their peers. A catalyst in a science classroom consistently displays an exceptional level of participation. They are curious and questioning. They ask those thought provoking inquiries which extend understanding. They are engrossed and engaged. They clearly and accurately share their observations, both verbally and in writing. They are analytical and articulate. They are risk takers, not afraid of mistakes or failure (as they are convinced these can lead to new knowledge).

Please recognize and celebrate the following fine young scientists: Madison Kays, Sam Stewart, Mason Eveland, Kaylee Straling, Lucy Holt, Win Jones, Brianne Bruch, Ayden Holland, Brian Gallegos-Figueroa and Ty’Amorous Mixon.

Keep up the fantastic effort, young scientists! You are excellent role models for your peers.
