Science Fair

Dear Science Fair Families,

Our science fair will be held on Tuesday, January 8.

Students participating will bring their projects to school and will come dressed for the science fair. Regular school attire is fine, but dressing up slightly is better - nice pants or a dress.

Students will stay after school and will report to Mrs. Godfrey's room (223) when car-riders are called.

Our judges will arrive at River Gate between 4:30 and 5.

The students will be called to the media center around 5 for their interviews.

PARENTS - you may arrive between 5:45 and 6 pm to view the projects and speak to the participants.

PARENTS - you may bring food for your child's dinner. At 6 pm, we will eat in the cafeteria while the judges deliberate and choose the top 8 and top 3 winners.

At 7 pm, participants will report to the media center for a short awards ceremony.

Please email  Mrs.Godfrey at with questions or concerns.
