    Dear Parents, Burr Intermediate School will be having a Science Fair on March 6 & 7, 2018. You will be invited to view the exhibits in each classroom on ONE of these evenings. Projects may be taken home after your evening visit. All students are expected to participate. In addition to their display board, they are to complete:

    Topic Selection Form (pg. 5) Science Fair Project Plan (pg. 7-8) Summary of Project Form (pg. 10)

    All of these are included in this packet. We have also added other

    information, which we hope you find useful. You can find more resources on the Science Fair section of the Burr website. We will be happy to help your child select an appropriate topic of interest. We encourage your support; however the project must clearly reflect your childs own efforts. The Science Fair Project Plan and Summary Form are due on March 2, 2018.

    Please return the signed form on the next page as soon as possible. We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to seeing you at the Science Fair!

    Sincerely, The Fourth Grade Teachers
