I am currently coordinating the Doodle4Google Competition hosted by Google which I am presenting to all students in grades 5-8 during engineering class. It is a contest that allows students in grades K-12 to create a logo for Google! One talented young artist will see his or her artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school. This year's theme is "If I Could Invent One thing to Make the World a Better Place....."
I will introduce your child to the contest and begin the brainstorming process with them in class. Since this is voluntary, though highly encouraged, students should complete draft/artwork at home and bring in to me for support and guidance to make sure their drawing meets the criteria, by March 7. All final drawings are to be done on a specific template found and downloaded at: https://www.google.com/doodle4google/
The deadline for submission is March 20, 2014. Submission requires parental consent and some personal information, therefore you can submit final artwork (on the template provided only-copies of template will not be accepted) at your own convenience by that date either by uploading it or mailing it in. If you do not have access to a computer/scanner, students can bring in their final artwork for me to submit by March 10.
Mail submissions should be sent to: Doodle 4 Google, PO Box 510006, New Berlin, WI 53151.
** Once you and your child have submitted their artwork, have your child bring in a copy for me along with a note informing me that your child participated.

Our Magnet School
At PS/IS 192, the students are involved in math and science inquiry-based learning, actively making observations, collecting, analyzing and synthesizing information. Students learn to draw conclusions as they build their problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
The theme of math and science inquiry harnesses the natural curiosity of children and is used to drive learning across the content areas. Inquiry based study is infused into daily classroom instruction through the implementation of the 5 E Learning Cycle Model: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. This method of teaching and learning reinforces the natural process of providing students with the tools and settings they can use to gather information, make discoveries and share what they have learned with peers, staff and parents.
Remember you can find out scores and other information
