Good evening Fantastic Nerge Community!

Please note that there is a half-day of school on Wednesday, May 6th.  Students will be dismissed at 11:40 AM, and there is no school for kindergarteners that day.

Please join us on Wednesday, May 6th  at 6:30 for our Science Fair and STEM Open House. (see attachment)

Open House and Science Fair Flyer

Students in grades K-4 participating in the Science Fair will be allowed to come to the gym between 5:00 and 6:00 PM on Tuesday, May 5th to set up their projects.  As the science fair projects were mandatory for 5th and 6th Graders, they will be bringing their projects to school on Tuesday morning in order to present to their teachers and classmates for grading purposes.  All students, K-6, will have the opportunity to present to a judge (not for grading purposes) for the Science Fair.

During Open House, please visit the Book Fair.  We are still looking for volunteers!  Please see the attachment for more details.
