Tyson Elementary Science Fair

Friday, March 24
2 p.m.
Tyson Elementary School

Students work very hard on science projects to show off their newly found knowledge of a range of experiments. Science projects are then presented for judging. Each student shares with a panel of judges what experiment they performed and what its outcome was. It’s fun and interesting. You do not have to be a scientist to help judge this event.

Tyson Elementary Reading Carnival

Thursday, May 18
1:45-3:30 p.m.
Tyson Elementary School

Students receive a ticket every day for completing their reading homework. That is: reading 20 minutes a day and getting a parent to sign their reading homework slip. At the Carnival, students check in at the door and receive a baggie full of tickets for every day they completed their reading homework. Only students with these tickets can participate. Parents cannot purchase tickets at the event. The Reading Carnival is amazing! It is a good incentive for the kids to do their reading homework each night.
