Science Fair


Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce the date of this year’s Wilkesboro Elementary School Science Fair and annual Science Fair Night.  This year it will take place on Tuesday, October 24, 2017. We hope that your child will be excited to participate in this amazing adventure!

As always, all WES students in 3rd - 5th grade are invited to participate in our school’s science fair. As it was last year the Wilkes County School System has made it mandatory for all Elementary students identified as AIG to participate in their school’s science fair. The AIG student’s science fair project will take the place of another classroom assignment. Other students will be given the choice of completing a science fair project or completing an alternative classroom assignment.  If you are unsure if your student is identified as AIG please contact their teacher.

To ensure that all projects meet the NC Science Fair Guidelines students must turn in the attached approval paper with their science fair idea and a detailed description before beginning their project. Once their project is approved a note will be sent home with the student with additional instructions.

We want to make this process as easy and painless as possible. Please contact me if you have any questions.  I am here to assist you in any way I can.  I want your child to succeed and have fun while they are working on their projects.


Kathryn Wright,

WES Science Fair Coordinator
