Southport Middle students testing their hypotheses

In Jessica Allen’s seventh grade science class at Southport Middle School, students have been learning about the scientific method. Students created their own hypothesis statements on a problem given to them and they got to test their statements. Delsin Pillay is testing his hypothesis statements using paper airplanes and a variety of variations within his testing environment to see if adding weight to a paper airplane’s wings makes it fly straighter.

Karol Carvelli, Volunteer Coordinator for Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition, recently welcomed the volunteers/business partners at an orientation. A fabulous breakfast was provided by PNC and Tropical Smoothie, and was served to approximately 45 volunteers that joined the Palm Pointe team. They signed up for committees and were informed of volunteeer procedures.  These volunteers support the school in numerous ways and have volunteered as many as 50,000 hours in one school year and are very much appreciated at Palm Pointe.
