Planetarium Show and Lunch at Panda East, December 19, 10:15 -1:30 RESCHEDULED EVENT -New date  and time
A much loved annual event is the Astronomy Class presentation at the Amherst College Planetarium. A couple of students from Mr. Weem’s 11th grade Astronomy class will present a topic that they have researched to the entire high school. After the presentation everyone will walk down to Panda East for a Hartsbrook community pre-vacation Chinese lunch! We will collect a fee of  $10 for lunch. Generally, we are finished around 1:00. When possible we ask parents to pick up their students in Amherst. There will be a bus returning to Hartsbrook but pick up time will be a bit later than Elementary school dismissal of 12:45 on that day.
