On Monday, March 15, Ruskin's 25th Annual Science Fair, "Science-O-Rama," will officially commence.
Coordinated by the Science Lab's very own Ms. Schima and Ms. Turner and sponsored generously by Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Outreach Foundation, this year's science fair is sure to be a success!
Along with the opportunity to learn from the experience and share their new found knowledge, each participant receives a ribbon, certificate and a science-related gift.
Parents, students and the community are invited to view the wonderful projects on May 16, during Ruskin's Open House.

|Our school, as well as other schools throughout the state,
faces budget reductions that threaten to change our public education
system in California. At the same time, our mission to educate and
inspire each student to succeed and contribute to the world around them
has not changed. Our challenge will be to continue providing a high
quality education with fewer resources.
As we have faced tough budget times in the past, Ruskin has continued to provide the best that it can, for all students. This is possible because of our dedicated staff, our committed parents and our community partners who continue to give, not only financially, but of themselves. If you have not had an opportunity, I encourage you to view the district's Budget updates. It is indeed a daunting task, but one which we will overcome, by working together.
While we could certainly benefit from more resources, the fact that test scores continue to go up, speaks volumes about the commitment of our staff, families and community to ensure a rich and appropriately challenging educational experience. The passion for learning runs deep. It is this passion and commitment by our community as a whole, that will allow us to survive these unprecedented budget reductions.
Together, we will emerge a leaner, more focused school system that continues to improve teaching and learning for all our students. Thank you for your continued support of not only Ruskin School, but the Berryessa Union School District.
Together, Everyone Achieves More!
