3/9/16 Update from Silver Beach

Silver Beach News for 3.9.16

Our Science Fair was a huge success! BIG thanks to Kristen Mason and Kirsten Isakovic who chaired this event sponsored by our PTO.  This year we had a record number of entries-154!!  All students who submitted a project had the opportunity to a present to a parent volunteer and receive feedback.  Throughout the day each classroom toured the projects.  It is wonderful to see kids so excited about science experiments and research!   Thanks to all the friends and family who to helped make our Science Fair such a positive learning experience for our kids.  Have a great week! ~ Nicole
