Open House & Science Fair
Thursday, April 2, 6:00 to 7:00 pm.
This is an opportunity for your student to show you all of the hard work they have done this year, and to check out the Science Fair and the Student Art Show. Your child will be your tour guide, so it is important they stay with you throughout the event. There will be no supervision for students on campus.
The Art Show will be held in the library and will feature art from every student at the school!
If your child is participating in the Science Fair, please drop off their project with the proposal form attached to the MUR on Monday morning before school. The Science Fair will be open from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Please plan to take your child's project home Thursday evening at the end of Open House.
We hope your family will be able to join us for this fun evening.
