5th Grade Project Fair Information and Updates

The next portions of your project are due on February 22 (research notes and STEAM components).

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!

An invitation was sent home on Tuesday. Times for each group of students presenting at the project fair:

Smith, Hernandez, Miller, Adams: 9:00am - 10:00am

Manning, Artley, Stratton: 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Your child should bring their project to school in the morning so that they will have time to set it up in time for the presentation.
