  I want to thank everyone who participated in the annual PS 130 Science Fair!
This year there were 116 projects and displays to judge! 200 ballots were given out (with a 20 point maximum on each). Most of the overall winners were voted for, however there were quite a few that didn’t receive votes but they were scientifically amazing!
  There will be a display of the top 15 overall Blue Ribbon winners Thursday, January 23rd, at 5:30pm during the January PA meeting.
  The many entries that placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on each grade will be announced and awarded ribbons next week during the school day. Thanks again to Ms. M. Nunziata,
Ms. C. Thaler, Ms. C. Farrell, and the PS 130 Parent’s Association for their support!
