OAS PTA Presents: Circus Assembly!


The Science Circus Assembly is Liberty Science Center’s most popular show for Grades 3-8 and will be coming to OAS this Thursday,  March 22! Students will explore positives and negatives of static electricity, the sub-zero temperatures of liquid nitrogen, the states of matter, and the immense pressure of air.  This Assembly includes over a dozen thrilling experiments and as always, a lot of volunteers! It is a great way to showcase the concepts of energy and matter!

What’s BYOT?

byod1-resized-600BYOT stands for “Bring Your Own Technology” and it’s the latest trend that schools across the world are implementing!  Students are given the option to bring in their own device (non-gaming, non-phone).  Tablets, laptops, etc… are acceptable.  The devices simply need to be WiFi ready and they can connect to the school’s internet, which comes with content controls built in.  OAS recently announced their BYOT Program, which is OPTIONAL for Middle School Students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders only).  Visit the districts BYOT page for all the details: http://cranfordschools.org/new/orange-avenue-school-byod/
