Great science fair

We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the staff, students and volunteer judges of the Aspen Elementary School who participated in the first annual Science Fair held on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Over 140 projects representing the work of 366 students were included in the fair. This phenomenal turnout in its first year is an indication of how dedicated our teachers and our students are to learning and demonstrates their eagerness to explore scientific issues.

Julie Wille, challenge coordinator at the elementary school and fair director, stepped into her new role with grace and patience. Her guidance gave many students the courage to accept the challenge of developing a project.

Congratulations to all on a job well done!
