Invention Convention

This week, our 4th grade students presented their inventions at our annual "Invention Convention". This is a chance for students to think about problems in their own lives and create a solution, a prototype, and a presentation. Many thanks to Mrs. Cosgrove, our gifted and talented coordinator, for her leadership on this project. We would also like to thank our 4th grade teachers Ms. Carrier and Mrs. Schwaab.

Thank you to our Lakeview PTO for their coordination of this event!
