Interest Fair

Date/Time/Location – TBD
What is an Interest Fair? It’s a fun, educational event that is somewhat like a science fair–only students get to present on whatever topic they’d like. It can certainly be science, but could also be history, our Catholic Faith, a hobby, a famous person, or any topic under the sun. There will be judging and prizes for our winners. An Interest Fair is great fun for presenters and observers alike. 

Watch for more details to come!
