Welcome to our first five-day week of school since the week of December 11! (wow!) We will have guest speakers from the TEE program on Friday, so if you have an interest in TEE, be sure to make an extra effort to be in class on that day.

Cool Science of the Week
Who doesn’t love adorable sea turtles? They’re precious, right? Almost every species of sea turtle is also endangered, and their plight has hit a serious hurdle by way of climate change. The sex of a hatchling sea turtle depends on the temperature of the sand during incubation, and with rising global temperatures, 99% of the recently hatched green sea turtles are female! Obviously that’s a big problem for future generations of sea turtles. Sad!
“Not cool, dude!”
