Mrs. Johnson's 5th grade students studied the engineering process. Students solved the problem of high gas prices by creating a prototype of a wind powered car. They tested, modified, and retested their cars to improve them.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students in 5th through 8th grade have the opportunity to participate in Yoga 4 Kids. This program is offered in connection with our Marion County 4-H extension office. Research has shown that yoga can improve memory and attention and even alleviate stress which are all factors in academic success.
Students in 7th grade participated in a Q&A with a geneticist. They discussed how to become a scientist, how to pick the right college, and what geneticists study.
