Science Projects must utilize Scientific/Experimental investigation using the Scientific Method

(see Science Fair Tab above for Science Fair Packet)

Models (including volcanoes and robots) cannot be accepted.  Projects involving bacteria and mold are highly discouraged, as they can be hazardous to student’s health.

Please Note:

All elements of the scientific investigation are expected to be age appropriate to the level of the student. The young scientist involved should be the primary investigator, however, parents are encouraged to help with both ideas and execution of the experiment on an age appropriate level. Ways to facilitate scientific exploration and learning include asking leading questions to steer the development of the ideas and concepts, acting as ‘scribe’ where necessary for legibility and record keeping and supervising the actual experiment and data collection.



Champ Snack Bags

   We need ongoing help with Champion Snack Bags,
 please consider dropping off some of the listed items.
Thank you- CHES PTA Community Outreach.
One of our PTA’s Community Outreach programs is to collect fun and healthy weekend snack bags for our students and siblings with insecure food.  Every Friday, we are able to send home snacks for the weekend.  To do this, we need donations for snack items and/or gift cards from Publix, Dollar Tree, Aldi, and Kroger so we can buy the snacks.
