Young Scientists Showcase their Projects
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
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.

Vocabulary Parade Debuts at East Hill
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!
