Genius Hour Presentations

We will be having our 2nd round of Genius Hour presentations on Wednesday, May 24th from 4:00-5:30 pm. We know this is so close to the last day of school, but we want to be sure students have plenty of time to finish their projects and are able to show off all of their hard work. We will have an additional morning time on the 25th for students to present who cannot stay after school on the 24th.


If you have any questions/concerns, please let us know!
