Kirby MS Student Council teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's fundraising campaign, Pennies for Patients. For three weeks in February, the school collected money with an original goal of raising $750 to help promote awareness for blood cancers. Not only did they reach their goal, it was tripled by raising a total of $2,304.37! The winning class will receive a pasta party from Olive Garden. Way to go above and beyond to help find a cure for blood cancers!
Students at Judson Middle School have a better idea of what it's like to be in space. Science Teacher Mr. Queller initiated this idea through a generous grant from the Nijam Foundation to participate in Earth Odyssey...a STEM program at the Challenger Center.
This newest project at the Scobee Planetarium brings science to life in a way that gives students a chance to take what they've learned in the classroom and see it work in a real life scenario. This happens through Project Based Learning in this state of the art simulated space environment that is a blast for the kids and just makes learning engaging and fun.
The Metzger Middle School Honors Band and Symphonic Band recently competed in the UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest at Burbank High School and did a tremendous job. Both groups came away with Superior Ratings in their concert performance and sight reading ability. That means they earned the coveted "Sweepstakes" award. Congratulations to these students under the direction of John Roberson and Bryant Aynes.
