Sixth Grade Science Fair

Katalina Flores

On January 24th, 2019, the Meadowbrook 6th grade students had a science fair. They’ve been working on it for about a month. They had a chance to display their boards while younger students came in to look at them. It was a very successful science fair. Everyone worked hard on their boards. Congratulations to those who are moving up to the next level! Younger students, hopefully you have a lot of good ideas for when you are in 6th grade and you get to participate in the science fair!

In It to Win It - A Minute to Win It Challenge

Jessika Anderson

As Term 2 came to a close 4th graders were getting their game faces on. By having good behavior and not receiving tickets during term 2 they had earned the privilege to compete in 4th grade's fiercest competition. All four classes would face off in challenges, one minute long, to see who would come out victorious! 4th graders showed their strength during the tissue pull, cup stack and junk in the trunk. They showed persistence in the ping pong bounce and the ice cream drop and they showed creativity during the dizzy mummy and face the cookie.
