West Homer Elementary School would like to thank all who contributed to the success of our recent science fair.  A special thanks goes to our panel of judges who spent the entire day on Monday, March 25, carefully considering and responding to each project. 

Our judges included the following community members: Jen Booze, Mike Byerly, Conrad Field, Karen Sonnen, Mike Sellers, Jeff Coble, Erik Pullman, Derek Bynagle, Trish Herman, Pat Wise, Casey Moss, Carol Demers, Mike Cline, Trina Fellows, Glenn Hollowell, Ted Otis, Dina Matkin and Janet Fink. 

A delicious lunch was catered by Maura’s Kitchen, and several staff members, as well, provided brunch treats for the judging panel. 

Congratulations to our students, parents, and staff for the exceptional efforts in exploring unique questions through the scientific process and presenting results in an informative and engaging manner. The evening of viewing on Tuesday, March 26, combined with the Library’s Book Fair Friends and Family Night, was well attended with enthusiastic responses.
