Students at WCMS participated in the annual Social Science Fair. Students have worked for three months to complete their projects. ELA teachers incorporated the research papers into their classroom instruction. Science and Social Studies teachers incorporated portions of the projects into their classroom instruction and also assisted students after school.
All students submitted either a science or social studies project. These projects were judged by teachers and ten projects in both science and social studies were selected from each grade level to compete at the school fair. The School Social Science Fair took place November 28 with judging by local community members and district staff members.
Congratulations to the following students:
