  • The science fair date is now the last Wednesday in January, January 25, 2017.
  • Also please note that set up will be on the same day as science fair so your students will bring their boards to the junior high gym on the same day as the fair.
  • Registration forms are now due in December before the break.


  • XCountry performed great at the State Meet! Boy’s placed 8th out of 20 teams and Girl’s placed 9th out of 23. Congratulations!
