Meet the Teacher

July 30, 2019

5:00pm-7:00pm

Please join us for the Teacher Meet and Greet! This is a great time to drop off your school supplies and meet your student’s teacher for the first time. We highly encourage every student to be there with their parents so you can get some important information that your student’s teacher wants you to know to help your student have the most successful school year possible. The first day of school is August 1st.

Don’t forget to visit the cafeteria to join PTA, sign-up for committees, and to place orders for spirit wear and yearbooks!

*** If you ordered school supplies, they will be in your students classroom. ***

We look forward to seeing everyone back at the Teacher Meet and Greet!

Science Fair

Have you had a burning question keeping you up at night?  Well, now’s the time to find the answer to that question!  The Due West Science Fair is looking for young, eager scientists willing to do a little experimentation and show us those answers.  Again this year, 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students may enter a group project (two students per group – must be in the same grade level).

Students will be evaluated by a group of independent judges on three criteria:

  • Project – Was the scientific process (hypothesis, variables, conclusion) followed?  It doesn’t matter if your hypothesis is proven wrong.  It’s all in finding if it’s right or wrong that counts.
  • Science Project Logbook – Was the process recorded in a detailed step by step manner?
  • Board – Is your science fair board neat and all the necessary data displayed?
  • Presentation – Each student should be able to give a brief description of his or her experiment and answer the judges’ questions.

Who can participate – Any student K-5

January 16th  – No Later than the 16th, please send in the form below.

January 23rd  – Project judging at Due West for K – 2nd (projects due at the school media center by 7:45am)
