1. A SFPS committee decided that K-3 students will not be permitted to participate in the District Science Expo. The primary reason for this is that many, many teachers have seen once-eager science students burn out and grow to loathe conducting experiments by middle school if they begin doing annual experiments too early.
What this means for Carlos Gilbert: Our science fair team has decided to allow K-3 students to complete an experiment, but these experiments will not be judged. These students may present their projects to peers and display their boards at the CGE Science Fair.
2. The CGE Science Fair will be held after Winter Break (TBA).
3. The District Science Expo will be held on Tuesday, February 2, 2017.
4. Science Fair information will be distributed to 4th-6th grade students within the week. K-3 students may request this information from their homeroom teacher.
