Science Fair is COMING! March 4th

1/23/2019 11:40 am

The All-School Science Fair is Monday, 4 March, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM (and beyond!). 

 

On February 7, all classes will be visited by a "roving band of science-y folks" to show students some fun and easy experiments and answer questions about the Fair and how to enter.  More about these mysterious people to come... In the meantime, get your brains in gear for another exciting Science Fair! Click here for The official and all-informative Entry Form Packet or you may pick one up in the office.

 

Contact me if you have any questions - dwalker@walnutcreeksd.org 

 

Did you know that your financial donations to WCEF and BV PTA make this Science Fair possible?  Your donation to WCEF actually pays for our amazing Science Specialist Deborah Walker salary and PTA funds the presentation boards and the Glow Stick Party!  Without your financial help this event simply would not happen!  Not to mention more importantly without your support of WCEF your child would not have access to Mrs. Walker and her weekly lessons.  Please make your donation to WCEF today if you have not already or if you have more to give.  We all thank you!
