Amazing Job, Young Scientists!
Congratulations to all the young scientists who shared their work Monday night at the Science Fair. Special thanks to volunteers who provided feedback to students and helped with the event. Your time and attention is valued and we are grateful for you. Thank you, especially, to Mr. Schrankler & Ms. Walsh who dedicates countless hours to our students and helped guide them through their projects from conception to completion. Bravo to all!
