5th Grade Project Fair Information and Updates
5th grade project fair information was sent home on Tuesday, January 12. The packet included all the information needed and all papers that are to be turned in. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to work together on a fun, creative project!
The next portions of your project are due on February 22. The actual project fair will take place on February 24. Please do not bring your project prior to this day; we simply do not have room for them in our classrooms and we don't want them to get damaged. Thank you!
