Our first full-scale science fair on January 26th was a huge success! Students and parents browsed their own and other projects, viewed the stars through our incredible new telescopes, went on night hikes on the trail, enjoyed a hot dog dinner, and watched part of Planet Earth. 235 students signed in. With parents, staff, and students combined, there were over 450 people here. Thanks to everyone who made it a big success, including the teachers who guided their students in creating projects, the science team for their help planning the event, the teachers who attended, the PTA and other parents for helping with food and more, andthe Partners in Education who sponsored it.
Our food drive was more successful than ever. We collected 2880 cans that weighed in at 2961 pounds! That breaks last year’s record of 2709 items weighing 2841 pounds. Special thanks to the fourth grade teachers and students for leading this important effort. We held a special ceremony on Friday morning to celebrate and reflect.
