The science fair is coming! On Thursday March 16th RES students in grades K-4 are invited to come and share their great science fair projects with our community. The science fair is a great way for students and families to work together to explore and learn about topics that interest them.
Entry forms will be sent home Friday February17th and will be due back by Friday March 10th.

discuss and brainstorm ideas with kids or families....just stop by and
see me, OR email me to set up some time.
Experimenting, Discovering and Learning!
