05 May Lower School Science Fair
The fourth and fifth-grade classes have been working hard on this year’s Science Fair projects. Each student did individual experiments as they displayed their knowledge of the Scientific Method. The fourth-grade winning projects were selected with the help of the National Honor Society. The fifth-grade students presented their projects before two judges on Monday, April 26. The judges were very impressed by all of the hard work, scientific thought, and creative display boards, making their job of deciding the top three very difficult. A special thank you to all of our judges: Mrs. Scasserra, Mrs. Pierce, Mrs. Leonard, and our special judge and alumnus, Dylan Wood.
