Recreation Outdoor Center at SLP Rec Center

 

Register by Friday, May 10:  REGISTER NOW!

Sign-up to Volunteer HERE

 

The Student Showcase Fair is an opportunity for Susan Lindgren students to share a topic of interest to them with our school community. Students can work independently or in teams of up to three students to create projects of their own design. Projects can relate to anything—science, art, music, hobbies, world cultures, occupations, athletics, the environment, animals, literature, mathematics—any topic that excites your student! 

 

The Fair is open to all Susan Lindgren students, Kindergarten through fifth grade. The event is completely free; there is no fee to participate or attend.

 

During the Fair, students will set up their displays and spend a few minutes discussing their project with a parent/guardian volunteer interviewer. This is not a competition and students will not be evaluated on their projects.

Parent/guardian volunteers are needed to help make this event a success. You can sign up to be a greeter, an interviewer, help at the snack table or with taking photos, or overall set-up and tear-down. This is a great chance to meet other parents and students! Sign up here.

Additional Information

  • Each project in the fair will be provided with a table space of 2-ft by 3-ft. Students working with partners will be assigned one table space for the group.
  • Set-up can be done any time between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m.
  • Students are asked to keep their projects set-up for the duration of the fair until 7:15 p.m. All projects need to be taken down by 7:30 p.m.
  • Students should be prepared to discuss their projects with an interviewer. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., an interviewer will spend a few minutes discussing the project with each child. Students are asked to stay with their projects until that interview takes place.
  • Parents/guardians may help with a student's project in minor ways; the intent is for the effort to be primarily the student's.
  • This is an extracurricular activity and there will not be an opportunity to work on the projects during school hours. 
  • There will be no electrical power available for projects. No exceptions.
  • Any live animals must be in their cage or container at all times.
