The school’s science teacher, Professor Charlisa Dixon, says students and staff are excited about the possibility of competing on a regional level.  She says that opportunity would not be possible without the school family working together as a unified body.

 

“These are extracurricular projects in addition to the students’ regular class assignments, so for them to produce such great work is a testament to the academic excellence we espouse here at Augustine,” said Dixon, who coordinated a science fair students held on Jan. 18. “It’s not just the project and writing down results. Students have to exemplify a complete package with presentation and communication skills intact as well.”

The Decatur school recently took home top honors at the National Beta Club’s Georgia Convention competition, which was held in December in Macon. Turner says students will also compete again this year in the annual ACCES Spelling Bee that will be held in March.
