Science Treasure Hunt for Children The Peoria Academy of Science is proud to be the sponsor of the Science Treasure Hunt for Children. It is a summer-long event for children to visit various “science sites” in Central Illinois to learn new things - and to compete for some really neat prizes. The summer of 2019 will be the 30th year for this annual event that will run from April 13 to September 2 (Labor Day). 6,000 Science Treasure Hunt passport booklets are printed each year containing information on 21 science sites in Central Illinois. Each science site has a page with several questions. Participants who enter the contest for prizes must visit eight or more sites. There are also ten “Everyday Science” experiments to be investigated by the participants. 100 winners are chosen at random from the qualified entrants. Each will receive several items consisting of books, puzzles, and other great science stuff. Then, six of the initial 100 winners will be randomly selected for additional prizes of which the top prize is a $500 “science shopping spree” from the NASCO Science Catalog. The 100 winners will be advised by letter and invited to the award ceremony at Peoria Riverfront Museum, September 29, 2019 at 2:00 PM. There is no fee to participate in the Science Treasure Hunt. Some sites that charge a fee allow kids with a passport in free and charge only the accompanying adults. If you have questions about the Science Treasure Hunt contact me: Mike Rucker, Peoria Academy of Science at firstname.lastname@example.org or 648-4153.

Northmoor is a "Nut-Free School." We do not allow/offer peanut or peanut by-products in our school. Please note that we have recently enrolled students who have severe allergic reactions to peanut butter, tree-nuts, and other nut by-products. Reactions to the smell or inadvertent consumption of peanut butter can range from mild allergic reactions to serious harm or even fatal results. Students, who are not allergic, are asked to never bring peanut butter/ by-products to school. Under no circumstances are treats, candies, or snacks brought into the school or classroom to contain peanut or nut by-products. On behalf or our students who allergic to nuts, we are sincerely grateful for your anticipated cooperation with this safety policy.
