Why Special Projects?
Collaboration is a major focus for Education & Community Services. ECS acts as a helpful link between the school district and the community.Partners include Kiwanis, Sonoran Arts League, Foothills Community Foundation, Desert Foothills Library, Scully Learning Center, First Things First, Desert Foothills Theater, Cave Creek Museum, PVCC and Musicfest. These partnerships make possible Science Fairs, Early Childhood Reading and Health Programs, Enrichment Classes for Developmentally Challenged students, Foothills Art Academy, Celebration of Arts, the exhibits at the Joan R. Lincoln Fine Arts Gallery, and Artist in the Classroom.
The 2016-2017 School Year is the 11th year for the Kiwanis Fair. The first Ten years were very successful with a great many projects entered. This year, we plan to increase the participation and also encourage a higher level of scientific quality in each project. This Handbook is part of that "Search for Quality". Also, we plan Teacher Workshops, Student Mentoring, and Student briefings to assist that search.
