MIW hosted a STEM night for 50 students and families. STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. The evening was a great success. Thanks to Claire Harrington, K-5 Math Coach, for coordinating this event.
The third grade held its annual Biography Wax Museum. Students selected a famous/historic person that they wanted to learn about. They read a biography about that individual, learned facts about the individual and then transformed into the historic figure. On the evening of the Wax Museum, students dressed like their famous person and recounted facts about their lives. Those in attendance got to meet famous individuals ranging from Amelia Earhart to General Patton.

“A Lot Alike Week” was sponsored by the Civil Rights Team. The purpose of the week was to promote an understanding that our similarities are greater than our differences.

There were a series of events that happened during the week, including an advisory activity in which students wrote something about their ancestry or a hobby on a sunray that was posted in the lobby of school.
