GMS conducts STEM Fair

(Press Release) — In preparation for the island-wide STEM Fair, Green Meadow School held its school-wide fair on Jan. 16, 2019.

As early as the beginning of the school year, the students were told to start looking for a project they would want to work on for their STEM Fair entries. Parents were encouraged to help in the search.

The judges picked the top five projects based on the criteria as listed on the STEM Fair scoresheet and how the students presented their projects.

The judges were elementary assistant principal Rosalie Habijan, middle school assistant principal Lorelisa Espiritu, Tina Marie Alverio, and the chairman of the GMS board, Mr. Ador Songcuan.
