St. Patrick School 8th Grade Academic Fair
St. Patrick School hosts an annual Academic Fair each year where the 8th grade students are tasked to research an area that truly interests them with the expectation that they become masters of their chosen topics. This day is full of scientific and academic topics that vary from Pyramid Power Theory to the topic of Honeybee Disorders. The preparation takes several weeks of research, writing a narrative paper, creating a display board and rehearsing their speeches. They are then expected to present their topics in front of their classroom peers and also in front of a pair of judges. St. Patrick School believes this level of learning through this type of project prepares their students for the rigors of high school.
Four levels of awards were presented on November 15th; honorable mention, 2nd place, 1st place and the highest award given out is called the “Outstanding” award. While the judges shared that most presentations were excellent this year, we are proud to announce the following students who received the Outstanding Award:
