Worthington Science Day
Worthington Schools will hold a Worthington Science Day for Kindergarten thru 12th grade students on March 1, 2014, at Thomas Worthington High School. You can register online at: worthington.k12.oh.us/ScienceDay
Students will have the opportunity to apply the scientific method to conduct independent research and share results. A science fair project provides hands-on experience and knowledge in independent fields of study involving science, math, or engineering.
This science event is designed to encourage students to apply basic science skills in a creative and productive manner. Participants identify a need or solve a problem by following the same steps and patent application procedures that an inventor would follow.
Students use the engineering design process to solve a problem based upon real world needs.
The Worthington Science Day is designed to help students:

Building Security and After-School Access
In response to a district-wide initiative to enhance building safety and security, building entrances are now secured throughout the school day and visitors will be “buzzed” in and asked to sign in at the Office at any time from 8:00-3:00.
Returning regularly for forgotten supplies and homework assignments is discouraged; however, in an effort to accommodate families, Office staff will respond to the buzzer until 3:30 and will permit access to classrooms if teachers are present and available to assist.
Technology in the Classroom that Works
Students will not be permitted to use cell phones and IPods during the school day and should be discouraged from bringing such devices to school. In accordance with Worthington goals and policies, use of technology in the classroom will be a continued focus, therefore IPads, Kindles, and other devices used specifically for the purpose of learning are acceptable.

Thanks for helping the Liberty PTA support our school, our teachers, and our children!
Liberty is collecting Box Tops & Tyson A+ Labels this school year. We have earned over $21,000 since 2004. Last year, we received over $2,700. Thank you so much for bringing them in.
We will have 2 more collections this year (Feb 6 & May 8.) The teacher of the winning class will choose the treat for his/her students.
Collection for Ronald McDonald House
We would like to encourage families to continue to save pop tabs to be given to the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio. They were grateful to receive the nearly 40 pounds of tabs our students brought in last year!
They also appreciate any donation of unopened sample size toiletries. Thank you for supporting this special cause.
VOLUNTEER BADGE APPLICATION
You will notice that this year’s version has changed to a red-bordered design. It also has an imprinted expiration date of 6/2018. Last year’s blue-bordered badge was imprinted with a 6/2017 expiration date.
Volunteers who have a badge without an imprinted expiration date may visit HR to have a new background check run and a new badge created. Our staff is happy to do this Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. This is a gradual process – we realize it will take some time to make everyone current with their badges. No rush, no panic.
All volunteers who need a current badge must present the application (found under Quick Links) in person to the HR Dept. Please note: it may take up to a week for the background check to be completed and the badge sent to the school. (This form is also available at Worthington Education Center reception desk.)
We encourage all parents and other volunteers who need badges to get processed early in the school year. Field trips and other fun volunteer opportunities , which require a badge, can come up on the calendar pretty quickly.
Thanks for ALL you do!!!
