Science Fair Judges

Hello Everyone,

    We have a great volunteer opportunity coming up in January!  We are looking for judges for our annual Science Fair.  Northridge Elementary school will hold two Science Fairs this year.  A Science Fair for grades K, 1st, 3rd, and 5th will be held on January 27th, 2016.  On January 28th, a Science Fair will be held for grades 2nd, 4th, and 6th.  Participation in a Science Fair provides children with a wonderful opportunity to satisfy their natural curiosity and to develop skills in critical thinking, research, problem-solving, and use of scientific methods.
    Judging will take place for approximately three hours beginning at around 9:00 am in the Northridge gym on both mornings.  You will judge display boards that the students have created using a set rubric.  Students will individually explain their projects to you.  I have attached the science fair rubric.  I will have copies of the rubric available for you to use on the days of the Science Fairs.  I will be sure to meet with you all on the mornings prior to judging to review the expectations and answer any questions you may have.  Please plan on arriving at the Northridge gym by 8:45am.  We should be done judging the science projects by 12:30pm.  Judging the projects is fairly straightforward and stress free!  The students are always eager and excited to present their projects.
    The Northridge gym will be open from 5-6pm on the evenings of January 27th and January 28th to provide parents with an opportunity to come and see the students' projects.
    If you are able and willing to help us out then could you please sign up as a volunteer judge on our Sign-up Genius.
Thank you so much for your support!

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
