Alden Place Elementary School Hosts Their Annual Science Fair

Our annual Science Fair at Alden Place Elementary was yet another big success. Over 80 students participated in the event and were judged by our visiting scientists Peter Groffman, Jen Rubbo, Samantha Root, Aude Lochet, Colin Fuss, and Vicky Kelly from the Cary Institute. Each student received a participation award and a science fair t-shirt with a unique design created by one of our own faculty members. Students talked to the judges in the morning and explained their project to them. In the afternoon all students were able to explore the scientists' work. The award ceremony at night was very well attended by parents and relatives who cheered on their future scientists. A big thank you to our PTO and the Junior Interact for sponsoring the t-shirts, as well as a thank you to the MTA for sponsoring the awards. Fifth graders Olivia Fried, Maryn Morgan, Stephanie DeMan, and Brian Sayah qualified to participate in the Dutchess County Fair held at the end of March---Go Scientists.

On Monday, February 23rd Elm Drive Elementary School celebrated the 100th day of school. The students created projects using one hundred things. They counted to 100, wrote their numbers to 100, and even wrote about what they would look like and act like when they are 100 years old. It was a fun day celebrating 100 days in school!
