MES faculty and staff celebrated the end of the nine weeks with an ice cream social.
Second grade students worked in cooperative groupings in the STEM lab to create habitat projects. They used recycled materials, animals created using the 3-D printer, and some items from home to create these dioramas of the grassland, forest, wetlands, and the ocean. Students enjoyed presenting their habitats.
Fifth grade students collaborated with MES art teacher, Mrs. Harrelson, to update the spirit rock. The MES spirit rock sits outside the front of the school and is traditionally repainted each year by current fifth grade students.
MES students were visited this week by the Ladysmith Fire Department. The firefighters talked to the students about fire safety and what it is like to be a firefighter. The students were able to watch a firefighter suit up and then look at a fire engine and ambulance.
On October 18th we will be participating in a STEM Day at Madison. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Each class will be doing stem activities to enrich their current curriculum. All activities will be completed during school.

At the end of their soil unit, Ms. Stewart’s third grade class got the chance to enjoy some edible soil! This soil showed all three layers. The bottom was chocolate chips representing the bedrock layer. Next they weathered down some Oreos to make the subsoil layer. Lastly, the topsoil was made up of chocolate pudding. This was a tasty way to close their study of soil.
