E-Cigarette Letter to Parents

Posted February 7, 2018 By Hal Miller

Dear Parents/Guardians

We want to share with you some information about a trend that has emerged among young people.  The use of e-cigarettes and vaporizer pens is increasing.  There are various types of e-cigarettes and vaporizer pens, so we have included some images to help you recognize them. These devices can sometimes be mistaken for USB flash drives. They can be used to “SMOKE” flavored oils, nicotine oil, or cannabis (marijuana) oil. They are often odorless, so their use can be hard to detect. We encourage you to discuss this with your child.

These devices are PROHIBITED in the school. If found in school, they will be confiscated.  If used in school, we will have to take disciplinary actions.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.


Carol Heeraman, Principal

Exciting news from PS/IS 30’s Science Teacher Mr. Tubbs:

I wanted to share some exciting news…I was selected to be a Space Foundation Teacher Liaison!

From the Space Foundation Website: “Teacher Liaisons are extraordinary educators who use space-related education programs and principles in the classroom to act as advocates for space-based education in their schools and districts…Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons serve as active links between the Space Foundation and their schools and school districts and often work with other space organizations, such as NASA.”

This is another opportunity for me to have access to resources and materials that can be utilized to enhance the experience our kids get in the science classroom.

Here is a link to the press release. Interesting fact: 7 of the 31 selected are members of the teacher program sponsored by Space Center Houston, of which I am also a part.


Space Foundation International Teacher Liaison Program Adds 31 Educators, Including Five in India and One in Nigeria | 34th Space Symposium

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 17, 2018) – Started by the Space Foundation in 2004, the Teacher Liaison program influences space and science education at an international level. Teacher Liaisons serve as advocates for space-themed education, and use Space Foundation-provided training and resources to further integrate space principles into the classroom.
