  • Science Fair Project Example

    Thank you for your interest in our upcoming Science Fair!  We will have the LaFayette Science Fair on Friday. January 11. Entries should be brought to school as the students arrive. Judging will take place between 8:30 -1:45, and winners will be announced to the student body. The gym will be open for parents and students to enjoy all submitted projects from 2:00-3:00 on January 11 after the winners are announced. Projects should be taken from the gym at the end of the day, if at all possible, because we will be using the gym for P.E. classes the next day. Three 1st, and three 2nd place winners and one principal’s choice project in grades 3-5 will have the opportunity to enter the Harnett County Science Fair. We will send home registration forms for the county level on January 11. Please complete and return to Mrs. Pearce or your child’s teacher immediately.
