Academic Fairs

The Ridglea Hills Science Fair will take place on Thursday, March 7— two months earlier than last year! The reason for this is that the District Science Fair this year will be March 26-28. 

  • This year, the Science Fair is required for 5th grade students, but all students in grades 2-4 are also encouraged to participate and will earn extra credit for doing so. (Students in Pre-K through 1st grade are welcome to display a project, but the entry will not be judged.) 
  • Students will choose a topic for the science fair project and then share what they learn with the RH community by preparing a display board.
  • The process of developing a science fair project involves asking questions, making predictions, drawing conclusions, and presenting findings. The experience of working through this process provides students with many rich opportunities for learning. 
  • Students may participate individually or submit a group project (maximum group size = five students).
  • Teachers at each grade level are offering extra credit for participation.
  • The first-place winners from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will advance to the District Science Fair on March 26-28.
  • We will have a parent information session on Tuesday, Feb. 19, starting at 3:15 p.m. in Mrs. Poe’s classroom in the 5th grade hallway. At that time, we will review pointers for project development and distribute trifold poster boards to interested students. If you are unable to attend the workshop, please make arrangements to pick up a trifold poster board by following the instructions on the PTA website through the link below.
