STEM Fair - AFTER TESTING - May 3-5

Teachers will facilitate students

as they participate in the BTMS STEM Fair.

We appreciate Debra facilitating the organization of these activities for our students - as well as ALL of those who have helped.

Resources for the Butterfield STEM Fair are from an Ed Foundation Grant.

CLICK HERE for the STEM FAIR SCHEDULE.

(Note - All Teachers should have individual planning time throughout the week. If, for some reason, you do NOT have planning time, please let us know asap and we'll correct the issue.)

I seek opportunities to show gratitude and celebrate with colleagues.
