WMS 8th graders loaded on buses for the Intrust Bank Arena Wednesday morning, to watch the first round practices for the NCAA March Madness Tournament which commences on Thursday, March 15th in Wichita and many other locales nation-wide!
WMS had a solid group of Knights and Lady Knights take part in the Pioneer League Div IV Championship Tuesday. Congratulations to all of them for their participation, that takes considerable nerve and composure to participate in these kind of events and to do so at middle school age says a lot about this group of 5!
Kudos to Jax Cornejo who finished FIRST in the 7th grade division - he won it all, spelling the word Methuselah correctly! Great job Jax!
The WMS 8th grade has been working on an "Egg Drop Challenge". Students design their "egg vessels" if you will and determine which prevent the egg from breaking when dropped from different heights.
First Drop: Track Bleachers
2nd Drop: Bandroom Balcony
3rd Drop: North Exterior Gym Balcony
Final Drop: From atop Cafeteria (by Custodian Troy Jones)
