In Lexington ISD we recognize that a critical key to that happiness and success is for us to encourage and cultivate their children’s curiosity and to help them realize that questions are sometimes more important than answers. This week our fourth and fifth grade students had the opportunity to demonstrate their curiosity and questioning through the scientific process at our annual fourth and fifth grade science fair. Our science fair has been established to help our students apply learned skills in real world science situations, and to strengthen student motivation, understanding, and interest in science and the world in which they live. I appreciate the hard work of our elementary science teachers, Ms. Cheryl Salinas and Ms. Liz Selman. These two women have worked with incomparable resolve to foster our students’ curiosity and apply it towards forming questions and searching for answers. They are just another example of how hard all our teachers work and how invested they are in the futures of our students and the sustained excellence of our schools.
