2016 Sonoma County Science Olympiad Team- Would you like to be on the LT Team?
This is a rigorous but fun academic event sponsored by the Sonoma County Office of Education and requires that students demonstrate a passion for science. Students must also be positive role models, have excellent attendance, and be up-to-date on their schoolwork.
School teams consist of from 12 to 15 students in grades 4-6. The students compete in 14 events, sometimes as teams of 2-5 students. The events are quite diverse, ranging from tossing paper airplanes for accuracy to identifying animals by their tracks to doing mathematical calculations and performing experiments.

The team will meet for practices on the following days/dates/times: Thursdays from 3:15-4:15 PM in Room G1. You will need to make arrangements for transportation home after the meetings. Our first meeting will be on January 7, 2016. Participation in the practice meetings is essential!
The Science Olympiad competition will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016. Students will need to be at Lawrence Jones Middle School, in Rohnert Park, from 8:15 until around 3:00. You will need to arrange transportation (there won’t be a school bus.).
If your child is interested in being a part of our school’s team, and you can provide or arrange for transportation, please return the required permission slip by December 16, 2015. Permission slips will be handed out at the Informational Meeting on December 10, 2015 from 12:30-1:15 PM.
Additionally, we need parents to help on the day of the Science Olympiad. Parents are needed to supervise events and to supervise activities in an “Activity Room.” Please let me know if you are willing to help out.
