Young Scientists Showcase their Projects at WGMS   

On January 28, WGMS students displayed Science Fair projects that explained the results of their research to their fellow students, to judges, and to their families who came in the evening to view the exhibits.

Each project was judged on the uniqueness of the problem, how well the hypothesis could be tested, design and procedures of the experiment, and how appropriately the materials and equipment were used to carry out the testing.

This year's fair had 68 students that made 40 projects; student projects were entered in the category for Human Sensory Perception, Psychology, Health and Consumer Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, and Engineering. more

The Vocabulary Parade Debuts at East Hill Elementary School  

On Wednesday, February 3, over 90 students were involved in East Hill Elementary School's First Annual Vocabulary Parade. Students worked in pairs or trios to showcase a word.

One student gave a description of the word, including the meaning, part of speech, different forms of the word, synonyms, antonyms, etc., while their partner(s), dressed up as the word, and then paraded through the gym. Over forty words were showcased.

The idea for the parade came from the book Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster, by Debra Frasier. Students are excited about doing it again next year!
