Social Studies Fair
St. Paul’s Social Studies Fair 2019  
 
Our school holds a fair every year. This is the year for the Social Studies Fair.  The fair projects will be displayed at church on the weekend of March 17th which is the end of Lutheran Elementary School Week(LES).  All projects should be brought to school for LES week to be judged. Your projects need to be to school by the morning of March 11th for judging. If there are any questions contact, Mr. Kaesermann.
 
*All students in grades 3-8 are required to do an individual project for this fair. The topic this year should focus on a Triumph OR Tragedy in world history. (Disasters, achievements, inventions, a hero, a villain, wars, etc.) Any event/person that is notable in history is acceptable. Topics that students are interested in works the best.
 
Read and keep this description (it’s a checklist) for your child’s project:
