The district Science Fair proved to be a great success.  Many wonderful projects were viewed in the MacKinnon gymnasium on May 18th.  Quite of few of the projects evidenced strong use of mathematics skills.  Did the  math links  help some of you with your science work?
 
Congratulation to all of the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders who participated in the fair!
