REMINDER

Dear Parents,

     Our STEM Fair is fast approaching. If your child is interested in participating in the STEM Fair this year, s/he may do so.  Participation is optional in Grade 3 FI. I am asking the students to do the project at home. They can work with a friend, if they wish. The project will be done in English as students don’t have all the necessary French “Science” language at this time.

     If your child is doing a Science Project for the STEM Fair, s/he can bring the completed project to the classroom Thursday, March 14th  or Friday so we can put the final touches on it.  Students will also practice presenting their project to their classmates.

     The school STEM Fair will be held Tuesday, March 19th, 2019. The students will display their projects in their classroom. Parents are invited to visit the classrooms and view the projects.

For further assistance please refer to STEM North website: http://stemnorth.nbed.nb.ca/other/science
