  • JHS 8th Graders Compete in Regional Science Fair
    This year Jefferson-Houston School competed in the district science fair for the first time. Under the instruction of Mr. David Paladin, eighth graders Delilah Garvin and Grace Guimond performed an experiment detailing how the material of a marble affected the amount of force generated by that marble. Grace and Delilah submitted their experiment to the ACPS District Science Fair where Grace presented and received Honorable mention and placed in the Regional Science Fair at Wakefield High School. There, the JH team performed in an exceptional manner and won second place in the Physics and Astronomy Category. Mr. Paladin and the JH community are extremely proud of the young ladies’ achievement and know that a legacy of high-quality science inquiry, instruction, and experimentation at Jefferson-Houston School will continue.
