Alan Ingalls Jr., Suvin Sanpal, Meadow Bell and Samantha Karlsson are the winners of their respective grade level vocabulary quiz contest. As part of a school wide vocabulary initiative students in each grade level are challenged to learn a new vocabulary word each week. At the end of 10 weeks students take a quiz on the words they have learned. The students with the highest scores are entered into a drawing for a prize. Ask your student what word they learned this week!
On the evening of March 18th the 7th and 8th grade band and chorus students performed for friends and family members.

Although Pi Day is always special in the middle school why is it so special this year you ask? The date is 3/14/15, those are the first five digits in the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter! AND as if that wasn't enough reason to celebrate at 26 minutes and 53 seconds after 9 a.m (and again at 9 p.m), we will pass a date and time represented by the first 10 digits of π. This won't happen again for another 100 years!
After reading the book "Sir Circumference and the First Round Table" and learning lots of cool Pi facts they used compasses to draw "perfect" circles.
On March 7th six teams with a total of 48 students from the middle school competed in two divisions of the Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind Competition. They brought home a 1st place finish, two 4th place finishes, a 5th place finish, a 7th place finish and a 9th place finish. The 8th grade team of Mary Kate Ames, Brenna Coleman, Alison Wallace, Maggie Squier, Anna Marino, Megan Betke and Myah Perino that placed first in their division will compete at the state tournament on April 11th at Binghamton University.
Ms. Ulion's accelerated science class has worked very hard over the past month designing and implementing their own unique science experiments. After extensive research, not only did they design and perform their experiments, but they also wrote formal lab reports with detailed scientific conclusions. Each student was given 3-6 scientific questions to research to help them explain why their results occurred. The students hard work and firm understanding of the science involved in their experiment was evident to all who attended.
