LMS Science Fair!!

We are excited about our “5th Annual LMS Science and Engineering Fair” coming up! The fair will be held on the evening of Tuesday, March 1st 2016, 6:30-8:00 pm. All students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will have their projects on display to share with our school community.

Our LMS PTSA will also be at the science fair with pizza, Caesar salad, other snacks and dessert for sale!  Feel free to come for dinner! 

 We have once again invited judges from our community with experience in Science to help award first, second and third place ribbons at each grade level. These awards allow students at LMS to attend the WA State Science Fair in Bremerton at the end of March and compete for additional recognition. A group of scientists from LMS will also help with Science Day at the elementary school. Come and celebrate our young scientists and engineers, as they investigate questions and solve problems!
