Wilchester Science Fair
The Wilchester Science Fair is an annual event for 1st through 5th graders that teaches students the true nature of science.
The student researcher must formulate a hypothesis or need, design experiments, and ensure proper data collection. It is designed to empower students in a fun, positive manner to realize that they can ask questions about anything and discover the answers by themselves.
Students are encouraged to think independently and outside the box as they investigate and explore scientific experiments. It also reinforces scientific terms and thought processes taught in the classrooms.
There are different processes for lower grades (1st-3rd) and higher grades (4th-5th). You can get involved by signing up on your Homeroom Class Sign-Up Genius (check with your Homeroom Parent to get the link). Please note, dates for the 2022-2023 science fair are not yet set, but the event will be held during second semester.

As a busy September comes to a close we want to thank the following volunteers and committees for their hard work at WCE this month. They are truly helping to make this "A Year for the Ages!"
Our Homeroom Coordinators Cassie Greenway and Courtney Robertson for all of their hard work behind the scenes working with this year's homeroom parents and for leading another great homeroom parent training meeting at the end of August.
The Birthday Marquee Coordinator Lisa Hodges for overseeing the sales of the birthday marquees and for working with the front office to get those names on the birthday marquee this month and the rest of the school year. We know how excited kids are to see their names on the marquee!
Our new Social Media Coordinator Annie McQueen for helping keep us all informed of what's happening around WCE. And there is alot to keep us informed about!
