Science Fair

If you are participating in Evangelical School’s Science Fair, please click here or go to the Parents section of our website and look under Documents in order to view/download the Science Fair Handbook.

Science Fair will be held on November 16-17, 2017 here at Evangelical School.  Projects need to be brought in on the morning of the 16th to the New Kitchen.  There will be signs on the door letting you know what space has been reserved for your project.  Some projects will be on the stage in the gym.

Judging will take place throughout the day on the 16th and 17th.  Ribbons will be placed on each project sometime before the assembly on Monday, November 20th at 9:00 AM.  During the assembly, each student who participated will get a certificate.

Science Club

Science Club is for Honor Roll students in 6th through 8th grades.  They meet usually on the first and third Mondays from 3:30-4:30 PM.

The second meeting of the month is for the club members to engage in some kind of enrichment activity.  This could be an experiment, engineering challenge, or learning game that either extends what has been or will be covered in science class or adds to the curriculum in some way.  Examples of things done include Mentos and soda, making hot air balloons, crystal growing, chemical reactions, and many more.

The first meeting of the month is for club members to watch some sort of educational movie or show that has science at its core.  During this meeting, snacks are allowed  and we usually try to discuss what we have seen at the end if time allows.

Science Club tries to take a few special field trips during the year.  These are on weekends and require parent chaperones/drivers for most destinations.  Club members can count on going to the City Museum during the Holidays and to Chicago for a day in May.

Parents/guardians can support Science Club by providing snacks for the movie meeting, being a chaperon for a field trip, and by encouraging their child to attend the meetings.

Wecome to Kindergarten!

Kindergarten at our school is a very busy place to be.  Throughout the year, our class will focus on academics like reading, handwriting, phonics, and math.  Kindergarten also provides lots of social opportunities for the children as well.  Your child’s first year of school is  very important, and sets the pattern for the grades to come.    It is my goal during the year to get to know each and every one of my students personally, and to provide them with wonderful memories of their first year of school!
