Science Fair

The Regional Science Fair was held on Tuesday, March 1st at Williston State College.  WTCS entered all of our 7th, 8th & 9th grade students with their projects.  WTCS did an amazing job and will be sending 10 students to the State Science Fair in Grand Forks on March 31-April 1. 

Congratulations to all our students!  Also thank you to our two science teachers, Mrs. Traci Shirk and Mrs. Melissa Corneliusen, who pour their heart & soul into our science program and our kids.
