Dear Parents / Guardians,
It’s time to start preparing for our annual School Science Fair which will be held on May 20, 2013 and May 21, 2013! We need the support of all of our parents and guardians. It has been proven that the participation in a science fair can help build the confidence and self-esteem of children. Every child at Superior Elementary School will be required to complete or participate in the completion of a science fair project.
The teachers and staff at Superior Elementary recommends that your child starts early to do the research for their topic, gather needed materials, and complete the actual experiment. The school will provide some of the materials needed to complete each project. However, we are asking you to provide other materials that your child may need.
Please be sure that your child takes the following steps when completing their Science Fair Project:
· Ask a Question
· Do Background Research
· Construct a Hypothesis
· Test the Hypothesis by doing an Experiment
· Analyze Data and Draw Conclusions
· Report results (Was your hypothesis correct.)
Parents, we are asking you to assist your child in conducting their background research and writing their project research paper. Also, please help your child to analyze their data and if needed; create a graph.
We cannot do it without your help!!!
Superior Elementary School Principal
