On Friday, April 4, students at Hillside Elementary met in the cafeteria to present their History and Literacy Fair projects to their fellow students, families and teachers.

Kindergarten through fifth-grade students were able to participate in the fair. Students were allowed to choose a topic or find a book, read it and create a display. High school students judged the projects by asking the younger students about their themes.

All the participants received a certificate and prize.
