Our middle school students have been working several months on projects that were completed this week and judged in our annual Social Science Fair. This event allows students to apply the scientific method to conduct independent research and complete meaningful experiments in the Science portion of the competition. Science projects were submitted by 7th and 8th grade students. The Social Studies portion of the competition allows students to develop research projects and communicate their findings. Social Studies projects were submitted by 6th and 8th grade students.
Student projects were submitted in each classroom. Projects were narrowed down by grade level and presented in the gym for final judging by community members and district staff. Thank you teachers, staff, and students for your efforts in these projects. Final projects were creative and well prepared.
