A Way with Words!

This year's Spelling Bee competitors certainly had a way with their words. The competition came down to the wire after one hour of incredible effort from the 22 participants. All of the boys and girls did a great job representing their classroom. Congratulations to winner, Lawrence Song, and runner-up, Mckenna Brophy.

Science Fair Success!

What do rubber eggs, hydroponic gardens, robots, and Venus Flytraps have in common? They, and more, filled Gayman Elementary during their recent science fair. To prepare, students defined their questions, worked on experiments, and presented their processes and results. Everything culminated at the fair on Thursday evening, January 24th, as 140 students from Kindergarten through Sixth-grade demonstrated their projects and shared their new-found knowledge with guests.

Thank you to our Superintendent, Dr. Green and our Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Weitzel, for joining us.
