Governor Scott Closes All K-12 Public Schools, State Colleges, State Universities and State Offices to Begin Preparations Immediately
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Today, Governor Rick Scott is directing all public K-12 schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices to close Friday, September 8 – Monday, September 11.
Governor Scott said, “Today, I am directing the closure of all public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices for their normal activities effective Friday through Monday, to ensure we have every space available for sheltering and staging. Floridians are facing a life-threatening storm in Hurricane Irma, and every family must prepare to evacuate. Our state’s public schools serve a vital role in our communities as shelters for displaced residents and staging areas for hurricane recovery efforts. Closing public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices will provide local and state emergency officials the flexibility necessary to support shelter and emergency response efforts.”

Ms. Mills class participated in an AIMS activity where they launched rockets….
Stomp rockets is a great hands-on activity that concluded our lessons on Earth and Space. In this lessons the students use the scientific method to hypothesize, conduct the experiment, analyze the results, draw conclusions and report results. They also reflected on how they could have changed or improved the experiment. The discussed and analyzed design aspects, environmental factors and other things that could change the results. In addition to the science aspect students used a real life number line to decipher their results and estimate their final distances based on where their rockets landed and how close or far they were from the positions that were marked.
