Science Bowl Tryouts

The National Science Bowl is an exciting, challenging, jeopardy style competition that tests knowledge in Middle School level science and math. This website http://science.energy.gov/wdts/nsb/ is a great resource for information about the Bowl.   The subject areas are middle school level Math (yes, even though it is Science Bowl, Math is a big part of it), Earth & Energy, Physics & Chemistry, Astronomy, and Life Science. 

WRMS has a strong Science Bowl program that has been sending a team to the regionals for the last five years.  For the last two years we have been sending two teams each to the regionals and have won the second prize trophy. 

This is the second tryout for this year’s time.  Students who are in the top five scorers in the tryouts, will be invited to join the Science Bowl group. The group meets once a week, until the Regionals in January/February 2018.  Every student who makes the program is expected to demonstrate excellent citizenship at WRMS, keep school first and maintain excellent grades, and attend every meeting.  The meetings are fun but also quite intense with lot of self-study, discussion of topics, quizzes & buzzer practice sessions. 

Some things to remember:

(1) This tryout is ONLY for students who are **CURRENTLY in SIXTH Grade** OR **WHO WERE NOT ABLE to attend the previous TRYOUT conducted in early 2017***  

(2) Walk-Ins are NOT allowed, you have to register.

Date/Time/Venue: (Exact details will be emailed to you once you register)

If you are interested in trying out - access this form and register for the pre-test.

Drop Off/Pick Up: Helpful Hints

Thank you to all the drivers at WRMS for showing patience and courtesy to other drivers. Here are some hints that may lighten traffic and stress on adults.

  1. There is only 1 right hand turn lane into the parking lot  from E. Branch Pkwy coming from Bollinger Canyon Pkwy (if unable to enter, go up to 2nd light, make u-turn, then left turn into parking lot).
  2. Leave the center lane open for through traffic
  3. Please carpool or encourage students to walk/ride a bike, scooter, or skateboard to and from school.WRMS dropoff pickup.gif

Parent and Community Education on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 7:00 in the California High School Theatre

Suicide Prevention Presentation by Contra Costa Crisis Center 

The mental health of our students is a top priority in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. According to the California Department of Education, 20 percent of the State’s kindergarten through 12th grade students struggle with mental health issues that impact their relationships at home, in school and in the community. Sometimes these feelings lead to students silently contemplating suicide.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has been a leader in providing suicide prevention education in our schools. These efforts have been reinforced with the passage of  Assembly Bill 2246: Pupil Suicide Prevention Policies. 

As part of the District’s education on mental health, there will be a Suicide Prevention Presentation on Monday, October 23 at 7 p.m. in the California High School Theater. The presentation is a general overview and introduction to suicide prevention where participants explore the issue of suicide, learn current suicide related statistics, how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, and how to get help.

For more information, visit the Contra Costa Crisis Center website.
