What Happened This Week?
Science Fair! Students have been working hard at home and at school for weeks on this year’s Science Fair projects and 127 students were eligible for entry into the Science Fair on Wednesday.

Congratulations to our top three winners: in third place, 6th grader Kailey Sheldon; in second place, 8th grader Kaiva Hicks, and in first place, 6th grader Danielle Rogers!
