    Please see the Connect-Ed message that was sent to families on the morning of July 18 regarding the new process for the 2017 Summer Mailing Forms. Please select "Read More" for updates.

    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

Science Fairs Celebrate Active Learning

  KLSD 2017 Science Fairs were festive celebrations of active learning, enjoyed by student scientists and their families, the administration, teachers, and scientists from the community.

Evolutionary Camouflage. Fingerprint Forensics. The Science of Flavor. How Oil Spills Affect Marine Life. Extracting DNA from Strawberries. Yawning. Slime. Static Electricity. Stardust. Springs. Gravity. Magnets. Meteors and Asteroids. Crystals. Toothpaste. Water Filters. Erupting Volcanoes.

These are some of the topics student explored in this year’s Science Fairs. Approximately one hundred projects were on display at each of the elementary school’s Science Fairs in February, each one accompanied by the student or team who had created it. The children’s knowledge and ability to communicate were as impressive as their projects.  

Participation in the science fair is encouraged but not mandatory. Students choose a topic that interests them and turn in an application in mid-January. They receive a three-fold display board and plenty of extra help on constructing a hypothesis, testing it with an experiment, drawing conclusions, and communicating the results.

Increase Miller Elementary School has had a science fair for several years. This was the third year for Meadow Pond Elementary School’s, and the inaugural year for Katonah Elementary School’s Science Fair. Each is a parent-run event, with support from the school’s PTA, parents, and teachers.

“Our science fair goal is to encourage scientific exploration in our students and to promote a lifelong love of science,” said Meadow Pond Elementary School Science Fair co-chairs Dawn Kamerman and Amanda Dickerson. 

“Science builds inquisitive minds and pushes students to think out of the box,” said Leah Jacobson, MD, MPH, who co-chaired Katonah Elementary School’s Science Fair with Susan Williams. “It encourages students to ask questions, do experiments and explore aspects of science that interest them."

David Fried, Chair of the Increase Miller Elementary School Science Fair, said, “The caliber of projects improves every year. These kids are doing incredible experiments across an array of disciples including chemistry, physics, and genetics. The breadth and depth of the projects is really impressive.”

All participants received stickers and ribbons.
