Long = Big Winners at District Science Fair!
[Click here for the winners list...]
Our students were all excited and showed their enthusiasm by defending the science behind their projects, while enduring the sharp scrutiny of the judging panel. They all handled the pressure like champions. The parents were very supportive of the entire process and were very helpful. Thank you for investing and believing in our school’s Science Fair. We could not have done it without you.
I am so proud of all of the top honors that we were able to achieve during the event and looking ahead to a larger Science Fair next year. Our next destination is the Regional Science Fair to be held at SMU on February 25, 2017.
We will continue to provide inspiration and mentorship to our students to allow them to achieve new heights in Science.
